Breeze Airways coming to Long Beach Airport

Long Beach Airport (LGB) is excited to announce the addition of Breeze Airways, a new airline set to start service from LGB this fall.Breeze is a new Utah-based airline that offers nonstop service between underserved routes across the United States. The company, with a fleet of Airbus 220-300, Embraer 190 and Embraer 195 aircraft, first launched in May 2021 with a flight from Tampa International Airport to Charleston International Airport. The destination for Breeze Airways’ service to and from Long Beach has not yet been announced.
“It’s no secret—airlines and travelers know that Long Beach is the coolest and most convenient gateway to Southern California,” said Long Beach Airport Director Cynthia Guidry. “Our airport is in a strong position to retain and attract airlines such as Breeze Airways that connect our great city to visitors and new, exciting destinations.”

The new carrier will be joining American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Hawaiian Airlines and Southwest Airlines already offering passenger service at LGB. Breeze was awarded one of two available permanent flight slots at LGB this month after those slots were relinquished by Delta on April 19, 2022. Southwest was awarded the other remaining slot to enhance its service at Long Beach Airport.
