First E190 for Breeze Airways
Written by Ivo Gračanin.
Breeze, the Salt Lake City based start-up airline, now has its first of 15 E190s leased from NAC to join the E195s the airline plans to lease from Azul. Crossover narrow-bodies like these have been the first airplanes to return to service during the pandemic, enabling airlines to quickly adjust capacity with demand while maintaining frequencies.
The E-Jets have been mainstays in airline fleets in Canada, Mexico and the US for years. The E190 along with the E195 will soon be offering affordable air service to markets that “bigger airlines have overlooked,” according to Breeze founder and current Chairman of Azul, David Neeleman. These will be mid-sized city pairs that are not currently served by nonstop flights.
