Breeze Airways announced a new route from Akron-Canton, OH, to Las Vegas – just as it touched down for the first time in “the entertainment capital of the world” today, inaugurating a new route from Richmond, VA.

The new service from Akron-Canton will be Breeze’s 11th new nonstop to serve Las Vegas.

“It’s a really exciting day today, as Breeze arrives in Las Vegas for the first time – bring out the showgirls!” said Breeze’s Founder and CEO David Neeleman. “And with our 11th new nonstop here, more people than ever can get to Vegas nonstop – for really low fares.”

“We welcome Breeze Airways’ announcement of roundtrip service between the Akron-Canton and Las Vegas markets,” said Ohio Governor Mike DeWine. “This new route shows confidence in the growth of the Akron-Canton Airport (CAK) and provides access to a top tourist and convention destination.”

“The investment Breeze is making in Las Vegas speaks to the enduring allure of this destination,” said Chris Jones, Chief Marketing Officer, Harry Reid International Airport. “With these and other coming new routes, Breeze has identified several unserved LAS markets and will soon make it even easier for travelers from across the country to fly to Las Vegas.”

“We are thankful for a winning partnership with Breeze Airways that allows us the ability to now offer nonstop service to CAK’s #1 unserved destination, Vegas! ” said Ren Camacho, Akron-Canton Airport President and CEO. “CAK’s convenient airport experience paired with Breeze’s excellent travel product make a sure bet for Northeast Ohio travelers.”

“Breeze Airways’ decision to choose Akron-Canton Airport for direct, round-trip service to Las Vegas adds more airline capacity accelerating the Airport’s post-pandemic recovery,” said J.P. Nauseef, JobsOhio president and CEO. “In less than a year, Breeze’s partnership has established seven nonstop markets for CAK, bolstering business and leisure travel options for Northeastern Ohioans while connecting other regions of the country to our state.”

Breeze will operate all Las Vegas new routes with its fleet of Airbus A220s. The airline plans to more than double its fleet this year, from 13 Embraer 190 and 195 aircraft to 30 aircraft, including 14 Airbus A220s and three additional Embraer E-jets. Breeze has ordered 80 new Airbus A220-300 aircraft, that will be delivered one per month over the next six years, with options for 40 more.
