Travelers may begin flying on David Neeleman’s new airline Breeze Airways next May as the start-up maps plans to serve “fly-over country” before entering the competitive fray flying coast-to-coast.

Salt Lake City-based Breeze will starting carrying passengers on regularly scheduled flights in May 2021, under a plan submitted to U.S. authorities on Friday. Embraer E190s will operate those early flights, with new Airbus A220-300s joining the fleet from August 2021.

Breeze is the latest venture from serial-airline entrepreneur Neeleman. His previous carriers include Azul in Brazil, JetBlue Airways, Morris Air and WestJet in Canada.

The launch of Breeze, previously known as Moxy, comes as the airline industry continues to be decimated by the coronavirus pandemic. Despite recent increases in screening numbers, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) continues to screen only about a quarter of the number of people that it did last year. Many are warning that the travel recovery is plateauing amid rising COVID-19 infections and new travel restrictions.

From Iceland to Bulgaria, here's how COVID-19 is impacting European countries.COVID-19 cases in Europe continue to stabilize but are not yet disappearing. Until the pandemic is over, keep asking yourself: Yes, you CAN travel, but SHOULD you? By June 15, much of Europe will be open to European travelers, though many measures remain in place to prevent a second wave of infection.

Delta Air Lines and United Airlines have both pulled some of their planned August flight additions, and Delta CEO Ed Bastian told staff on July 9 that they expect a “lengthy and slow” recovery ahead.

“With COVID and other airlines’ expansion, I’m pretty bearish on the fall,” Sun Country Airlines CEO Jude Bricker told TPG at the beginning of July.

Breeze has adapted its launch to the crisis. Its first scheduled passenger flight was postponed to 2021 from the end of this year earlier in July. In addition, it had axed a deal to lease 28 E195s from Azul signed in February — just before the pandemic — for “significantly better terms” on 15 E190s from leasing firm Nordic Aviation Capital.

Arguably more importantly, the pandemic created the opportunity for Breeze to acquire the operating certificate of Compass Airlines. Acquiring an operating certificate is a critical step in the launch of any new airline as without one they cannot carry passengers. This process can take years, though if anyone could do it quickly it is Neeleman, who has gone through the steps multiple times.

Compass shut down in April with the early termination of its flying contract with American Airlines. The carrier was the second U.S. regional after Trans States Airlines to fall victim to the pandemic. Both Compass and Trans States Airlines were owned by Trans States Holdings.

There are still a lot of details Breeze needs to work out. First and foremost, the U.S. Department of Transportation needs to sign off on its acquisition of Compass’ certificate. After that it needs to train crews, finalize a route map and begin selling tickets into what is likely to be a very competitive market.

Breeze executives have previously said that the airline will rely heavily on technology to improve the customer experience.

Down the road, Breeze plans to offer nonstop flights between the East Coast and California with its A220s from around Oct. 2021. This is a market JetBlue successfully entered under Neeleman in 2001 but also one that has grown more crowded and competitive in the decades since.

Researchers at the University of Shinshu in Japan have found that certain gut microbes can affect the way the immune system responds to certain allergens, and found that the number of flavonoids, a diverse group of phytonutrients, can positively improve bacteria. in the intestine.

Prior to beginning scheduled flights, Breeze plans to begin limited charter operations from Compass’ former Minneapolis/St. Paul (MSP) base from October. This will allow it to familiarize crews before the carrier begins carrying regular passengers.

However, Breeze will face competition from Minneapolis-based Sun Country. The hometown carrier flies both charter and scheduled passenger operations.

Delta also maintains one of its core U.S. domestic hubs in Minneapolis/St. Paul. Executives have said the airline is committed to the hub following the crisis.
