Low-fare airline Breeze Airways will launch new weekly service between Richmond International Airport and Palm Beach, Florida beginning Feb. 19, airline officials announced Dec. 6.
The addition is the airline’s first since it debuted in May. With the new route, Breeze now will serve four destinations from Richmond; the other three are Charleston, South Carolina; New Orleans, Louisiana; and Tampa, Florida.
Fares for the Saturday-only flight to Palm Beach will start at $59 one-way.
“Breeze’s business model is to add ‘nice, new nonstop’ flights on routes where only connecting service is offered by other carriers,” said David Neeleman, Breeze’s Chairman and CEO. “We’re excited to introduce Breeze service to South Florida, and look forward to adding more routes from Richmond.”
