PROVO, Utah — Breeze Airways debuted service out of Provo City Airport on Thursday.

The airline also began service out of San Bernardino, California on Thursday as well. The airline will offer daily nonstop flights from the two cities to San Francisco. Additionally, the airline will also offer one-stop/no plane change between Provo and San Bernardino via San Francisco.

“Today’s events mark three major milestones for Breeze as we launch service in Provo and San Bernardino, while opening our first West Coast base in Provo, near our Salt Lake City headquarters,” said Tom Doxey, President of Breeze Airways in a news release. “We also have the rare honor today of being the very first commercial airline to fly into San Bernardino, marking a major milestone for the airport and its community.”

Currently, the airline employees more than 250 individuals in its Salt Lake City headquarters. Furthermore, the company plans to hire an additional 180 people in the next year. 

“By investing in vital airport infrastructure, Provo City created economic opportunity rather than waiting for it.  With Breeze Airways now operating daily nonstop flights to an international airport, our forward-looking vision has opened our community to the world,” said Provo Mayor Michelle Kaufusi in a news release.

Earlier this year, the city of Provo announced the completion a new 75,000 square feet airport terminal and a partnership with Breeze Airways.
