New airlines welcomed with fanfare to Huntsville International Airport today

HUNTSVILLE – A new airlines was welcomed into the Huntsville International Airport for the first time today. New “low fare” Breeze Airways launched non-stop service this morning from Huntsville International Airport (HSV) to Charleston, SC (CHS), New Orleans, LA (MSY), and on July 22 for Tampa, FL (TPA) as part of its initial air service launch.

These new flights begin this morning with Breeze Airlines service to Charleston and New Orleans with a special “champagne launch” on the nose of the arriving Embraer 190 jet airliner with Breeze Airways CEO David Neeleman, Huntsville International Airport (HSV) CEO Rick Tucker and local dignitaries participating.

“Huntsville, Alabama is booming, and it is exciting news that Breeze Airways is officially launching their non-stop service today out of Huntsville International Airport,” said Governor Ivey. “We continue showing the world that Alabama is not only open for business, but that it is the best place to do business.”

“Huntsville’s dramatic growth and recurring designation as one of the best places to live in the country positions us to attract more residents and visitors. With this exciting investment from Breeze Airways, we can expand our airline capacity to reach even more destinations,” stated Mayor Tommy Battle.

“We are pleased today to officially launch Breeze Airways service at HSV, said Mark McDaniel, HSV Board Chairman. “The announcement of Breeze Airways is an economic development announcement as important as any other because transportation is the key to economic growth and prosperity. Our airport is the connection to other areas of the country and business opportunities found in those areas.” 

“We are excited about the new service and expect our community will respond to the new ‘Seriously Nice’ and ultra-low fare air service by taking advantage of the flexibility offered by flying and supporting Breeze Airways,” commented HSV CEO Rick Tucker.

For HSV service, Breeze will utilize the E190 jets seating 108 passengers with two-by-two configuration, so there are no middle seats. Seat assignments start from $10, but Family Seating is free for families traveling with children 12 and under. The charge to travel with a pet in the cabin is $75. Streaming inflight entertainment to personal devices will be available on each flight, provided by Global Eagle.
