David Neeleman, Founder and CEO, Breeze Airways, said:

It’s been the question on everyone’s lips since we first opened our headquarters – when are you flying from Utah? We’re excited to continue growing and hiring from here, and now flying from Utah too. The beautiful, newly renovated Provo airport will give our Guests an easy way to travel to both coasts.
