With the COVID-19 pandemic becoming less of a barrier to travel and studies showing that Americans are spending more time on the couch than ever before, Breeze Airways has cut the price of several flights originating at Tampa International Airport to help get the country moving again.

According to a news release, Tampa Bay residents can nab one-way fares for as little as $39. Eligible destinations include Akron, Ohio; Bentonville-Fayetteville, Arkansas; Charleston, South Carolina; Huntsville, Alabama; Louisville, Kentucky; Norfolk, Virginia; Richmond, Virginia; and Syracuse, New York.

Breeze Airways, citing research conducted by SWNS Digital, says that seven in 10 Americans polled agreed that their couch had become their best friend during the pandemic, with 61% using their couch as their primary place to deal with work emails, while 70% said their perfect night in involved spending time in the living room on the couch.

Upwork predicts that 22% of the American workforce will be remote by 2025 and the couch is now a work station, not just a place to relax and unwind,” Breeze Airways President Tom Doxey states in the release. “But remote work is just that — remote — so why not grab some really low fares, get off the couch and experience some amazing destinations.”

The low fares are available through Sept. 5, 2023, and can be booked directly online.
