Airline to offer flights to two new cities in Fort Myers

The service will begin in June.

FORT MYERS — One of the newest airlines in the U.S. is being welcomed at two area airports this summer.

The Lee County Port Authority announced in a news release that Breeze Airways will begin service in June to Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) in Fort Myers. The airline is adding service to Las Vegas and Charleston, South Carolina, beginning June 11.

“We are looking forward to welcoming Breeze Airways, one of the newest airlines in the United States, to Southwest Florida International Airport this summer,” says Ben Siegel, the executive director of the Lee County Port Authority. “It is outstanding to have a new carrier at RSW, but even more exciting that Breeze will serve Charleston, South Carolina, and Las Vegas, which are highly sought destinations by our community.”

The new flights will take off twice each week on Wednesdays and Saturdays with a new A220-300 aircraft that features 126 seats that spans over three classes.

The airline will begin operating out of Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport (SRQ) over the summer to Hartford, Connecticut.

“We are excited to have Breeze Airways join the list of airlines serving SRQ and we look forward to their low fares and start of service on June 4,” says Rick Piccolo, president and CEO of the airport. 
SRQ is currently served by 11 airlines with service to 53 nonstop destinations.
