The new service is an enticing option for Orlando theme park fans looking to visit California attractions such as Disneyland Resort, Knott’s Berry Farm, Six Flags Magic Mountain or Universal Studios Hollywood, all within reasonable driving distance of John Wayne. The same goes for California locals looking for non-stop flights for an epic visit to Orlando to enjoy Florida favorites like Walt Disney World Resort, Universal Orlando Resort or SeaWorld Orlando.

One-way Breeze fares between Orlando and Santa Ana start at $119 for Tuesday or Thursday flights purchased by November 15 and flown by May 16.

Breeze airline options

The new service is the 100th non-stop route for Breeze Airways, which launched in 2021 and bills itself as “the really nice low-cost airline”.

“For years we have envisioned flying from Orange County, Fla. to Orange County, California, and starting next year Breeze Airways will make it a reality,” said Kevin Thiabault, chief executive officer of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority. “This new flight will not only provide new, non-stop access to the West Coast for goods and services, but will also open up fantastic travel opportunities for Central Florida residents.”

“The addition of Orange County today marks our 34th national-level destination — and 8th from Orlando — and our 100th non-stop route overall,” said Tom Doxey, President of Breeze Airways. “I can’t think of a better way to celebrate this milestone than for the ‘nicest airline’ to connect two of the ‘happiest places on earth’.”

Beginning in March, travelers can also fly non-stop on the Breeze from Orlando to Akron-Canton, Ohio; Tulsa, okay; Huntsville, AL; and Benton-Fayetteville, AR. These cities add to Breeze’s existing list of non-stop flights from Orlando to Charleston, SC

Breeze also offers the “BreezeThru” service, which allows the plane to make one stop but travelers don’t have to change planes. From Orlando, Breeze offers BreezeThru flights to Hartford, Connecticut. Beginning February 16, Provo/Salt Lake City, Utah will be added.
