The initial network will code 15 cities on the East Coast and in the Midwest, South and Texas. The deal with Azul for 28 E195s was axed in favour of 15 E190s from Nordic Aviation Capital. Breeze also confirms it acquired the operating certificate of Compass Airlines.
Breeze Airways now intends to begin operations with scheduled routes from two US airports in March 2021. The carrier will no longer begin with charter services and A220s have been delayed to at least August 2021. Breeze also raised US$83 million from equity investors through a Series A financing.

Dublin Aerospace is opening its first British base after taking over the servicing operations at Exeter Airport, previously operated by grounded airline Flybe (UK).
