Breeze Airways to Debut Airbus A220 Aircraft at Bradley International Airport
Bradley International Airport welcomes the news that Breeze Airways will debut its brand new Airbus A220 aircraft on four of its routes at the airport.
Starting June 2, 2022*, the A220 will fly from Bradley International Airport to Charleston, SC; Columbus, OH; Norfolk, VA; and Pittsburgh, PA. The routes are now available for booking through September 6, 2022.
Until now, Breeze guests have been able to select from either the ‘Nice’ or ‘Nicer’ fare when booking on the Breeze website or app. When booking a flight on the A220-300, guests will have a third fare option to select, the ‘Nicest’ fare, which will feature a range of bundled amenities in addition to a first-class seat.
The Nicest fare also includes two checked bags, a carry-on bag and a personal item, and guests will receive 6% BreezePoints earned. All A220-300 aircraft will be outfitted later this year with the technology allowing guests to seamlessly stream TV or movies, check email, browse the internet and stay connected via social media or messaging apps while inflight.
Breeze’s A220-300 aircraft will feature a dynamic seating plan which can be customized for seasonality, or by route. The A220s will feature a range between 10 and 45 extra legroom seats and 80 standard legroom seats, all in a two-by-three configuration. The aircraft also will be outfitted with between 12 and 36 first class seats in a two-by-two configuration, featuring 39-inches of seat pitch, 20.5-inches of seat width and special features such as a footrest for added comfort. All seats are fitted with in-seat power and USB ports.
Overall, Breeze will have 15 A220-300s in service by the end of 2022 which will be used primarily for longer-haul flights, including transcontinental service. The carrier, which began service in May 2021 with an all-Embraer fleet, has agreed to purchase 80 A220-300s, with one aircraft scheduled to be delivered each month for the next six and a half years.
The A220 will not operate every day on each route. To determine which flights are operated by the A220, check to see if there is a “Nicest” fare option, which is only available on the Airbus jet.
