Breeze Airways pushes operations to 2021
“Welcome to Breeze Airways, a New Airline scheduled for take off in 2021!” is the start of the homepage for up and coming Breeze Airways. Their homepage Flybreeze.com invites guest to join their email list to receive updates and news and upcoming travel news.
Breeze Airways announced back in February their plans to begin service and start flying by the end of 2020. Although after the airline market took a massive hit from the Coronavirus outbreak, current demand for air travel has completely gone off the projections. The airline was initially planned on being called Moxy Airways although due to some name conflict with a Hotel chain the decision was made to pick a more unique name.
From the ICAO perspective it will operate with the three letter identifier MXY and the call sign with be MOXY. The conversations for starting the airline date back to June 2018 when David Neeleman joined capitol with Robert Milton, former Air Canada CEO, Henri Courpron, Former ILFC CEO, and Michael Lazarus former JetBlue Chairman. David Neeleman has had previous experience starting airlines as he co-founded Morris Air, WestJet, JetBlue, and Azul Linhas Aereas.
Many of the large commercial carriers flying today are companies that have existed for more than 20 years ago. With the 11 major carriers such as American Airlines, Delta Airlines, United Airlines, and Southwest Airlines flying 80% of domestic travel to routine destinations there is a small window of opportunity for the destinations that these large airlines do not favor.
Providing affordable air travel to smaller markets within the U.S. would allow for Breeze airways to offer more direct routes as compared to many Hub-and-spoke airline routes. As many routes have seized completely the introduction of more direct routes would be extremely valuable to an individual in an area distant from a large international Hub..
The airline plans to start its services for the uncrowded and direct routes that are being under-serviced. With the potential of starting some South American routes or potentially some trips over to Europe.
The airline initially planned on started its service with charter operations for airlines such as Azul. This will then transition them smoothly into being able to offer schedule operations with their A220-300s once delivered. Breeze Airways has ordered sixty of the A200-300s from Airbus Canada and deliveries are expected to begin in April 2021.
With air travel confidence still weak in the united states and with many countries looking to minimize international travel the decision to hold off is one that was made due to the various factors at play.

Acquiring Compass Airlines Scheduled Air Transportation Authorities
To help facilitate a quick and smooth approval process with the Federal Aviation Authority, Breeze airways has started conversations with Compass Airlines to acquire its interstate scheduled air trasnport authoriries. After Compass lost the contract with Delta Air Lines in 2019 and was financially affected due to the COVID-19 pandemic, its parent company Trans States Holdings decided to shut down operations.
On July 6th Breeze Airways filed with the US Department of Transportation to be able to purchase the assests relevant to operation scheduled service. This will allow them to utilze their manuals, resources and procedures to expedite the approval process of the FAA. Looking to operate both charter and schedule service routes, Breeze will most likely start to thin out their charter operations as more travel volumes start to increase.
ncorporated in Delaware, Breeze Airways is controlled by US airline entrepreneur David Neeleman (82.1%) with the remaining 17.9% controlled by a variety of management and private company investors all of whom are US nationals. Its current share capital is valued at USD23,856,241.
To raise additional capital needed to execute its business plan, Breeze is negotiating another equity financing round that will raise approximately USD45 million through the sale of common shares to approximately four US investors.
“A lead investor has been identified, and additional commitments are being secured,” it said. “Breeze anticipates closing the financing transaction in July and will supplement this [DOT] application with the specific ownership information and third-party verification of the funds available as a result of the capital raise.”
