Breeze to start CT’s Bradley to North Carolina route

WINDSOR LOCKS — Breeze Airways announced Tuesday that it will begin operating a route from Bradley International Airport to Raleigh-Durham International Airport in North Carolina on February 16, underscoring its ongoing expansion at Connecticut’s flagship airport.

One-way fares for flights from Windsor Locks-based Bradley to Raleigh-Durham start at $49, with the route scheduled to operate on Thursdays and Sundays. Breeze’s flights complement existing flights between Bradley and Raleigh-Durham operated by Delta Air Lines and Frontier Airlines.

Breeze also announced two other changes Tuesday for passengers departing from Bradley: the return of non-stop service to Pittsburgh on February 3 and the introduction of one-stop, same-day “BreezeThru” service to New Orleans .

“Breeze is always looking for underserved routes where we can add non-stop flights, low fares and our Seriously Nice service,” Breeze president Tom Doxey said in a statement. “We’re excited to add more destinations from Hartford.”
