Buzzy new low-cost airline breezes into San Antonio with 3 nonstop routes
San Antonio International Airport is landing even more nonstops with extremely low fares. Breeze Airways, a buzzy new low-cost carrier from the founder of Jet Blue, will launch three nonstop routes from SAT this summer.
Beginning July 15, the airline will offer direct flights from San Antonio to Oklahoma City (Will Rogers World Airport); Tulsa (Tulsa International Airport); and Bentonville/Fayetteville, Arkansas (Northwest Arkansas National Airport).
"Breeze provides nonstop service between underserved routes across the U.S. at affordable fares," the company website says. It notes such perks as easy booking and no change or cancellation fees, regardless of ticket tier.
A search of the Breeze website shows one-way tickets out of San Antonio starting at $39 for the "Nice" fare, while the "Nicer" option will cost you a minimum of $84 each way. The base fare includes only a personal item; for a carry-on bag, checked bag, extra legroom, drink and snack, and priority boarding, you'll want to opt for the "Nicer" of the two.
Breeze officially takes to the skies May 27 with inaugural routes serving Tampa, Florida; Charleston, South Carolina; and Hartford, Connecticut. More routes will roll out throughout the summer.
So far, San Antonio is the only Texas city to land the new airline.
