Breeze Airways Will Stop Flying New York to Los Angeles Route

Low-cost carrier Breeze Airways will stop flying between New York and Los Angeles as of May 1st. The cost cutting measure comes because the six-hour flight required a significant amount of crew and aircraft resources.

The news was first reported by The Points Guy, which confirmed with Breeze Airways that the route is being scrapped. The airline offered affordable fares for travel between the two major cities. Economy seats were as low as $149 one-way, while premium seats on the carrier sold for just $249.

You can regularly fly between New York and Los Angeles with several other carriers, so Breeze leaving the market will not leave people stranded. But Breeze opted to fly out of Westchester County Airport, rather than New York City’ three major airports. HPN is not the most convenient airport to get to for New Yorkers, but it is much smaller than others in the area, which means little wait times and barely any lines. The airport is located near the border of NY and CT, and it is five miles east of White Plains and about 30 miles north of New York City. 

The route from HPN was one of 10 that Breeze Airways offered to Los Angeles. Travelers looking for cheaper options can still hop on Breeze flights to the City of Angels from Bradley International Airport, Charleston International Airport, Jacksonville International Airport, Louis Armstrong International Airport, Norfolk International Airport, Pittsburgh International Airport, Raleigh-Durham International Airport, Rhode Island T.F. Green International Airport, and Richmond International Airporte.

Breeze Airways is also making other service changes at HPN. The airline will scrap service to Sarasota Bradenton International Airport (SRQ) at the end of May, and it will temporarily suspend flights to Norfolk International Airport (ORF) and Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport (SAV) after Labor Day weekend.

Breeze will also stop serving 24 seasonal routes will end after Labor Day weekend. But TPG reports that those routes should be back for the summer of 2024.
