 A large group of people gathered at the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport Friday to celebrate the new services being offered by Breeze airline.

The first arriving aircraft was greeted with the traditional water canons from the MHT airport crew and then celebrated with the spraying of champagne on the aircraft.

Manchester-Boston Regional Airport (MHT) is excited to welcome Breeze Airways with their inaugural flights to Charleston International Airport (CHS) and Orlando International Airport (MCO).

“It’s nice to see you, Breeze Airways!” said Airport Director Ted Kitchens, A.A.E. “We are excited to welcome Breeze to the MHT family. Breeze’s seriously nice, low fares will allow New Hampshire residents to explore new destinations such as Charleston and perennial favorites such as Orlando and Fort Myers. The combination of brand-new airplanes with an elevated onboard experience and a low-cost, bundled fare structure will prove to be very popular with the New Hampshire traveler. Welcome, Breeze, to MHT and New Hampshire!”

“We couldn’t be happier to launch service from Manchester to these two great destinations,” said Breeze Airways’ President Tom Doxey. “We started service from Providence three years ago and now offer more than 20 destinations so we expect to see continued growth from Manchester-Boston Regional.”

Breeze will launch one-stop/no change of plane “BreezeThru” service to Tampa International Airport (TPA) starting September 5, and their nonstop service to Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) in Fort Myers will begin on October 2.

Breeze will operate all routes twice weekly utilizing their Airbus 220-300 aircraft.
