Breeze Airways is Growing at Akron-Canton Airport (CAK)



Two New Nonstops Announced at Akron-Canton Airport

Breeze Airways to Fly Nonstop to Nashville and Hartford

GREEN, OH – Breeze Airways is growing at Akron-Canton Airport (CAK)! We are happy to announce an additional two new nonstops that will soon connect Northeast Ohio travelers to Nashville, TN (BNA) and Hartford, CT (BDL.)

With four existing destinations, Breeze will now fly nonstop from CAK to six cities.

“Breeze Airways’ growth at the Akron-Canton Airport is a true testament of community support. This exciting partnership is the culmination of long-time passenger traffic, history of air service, public and private sponsorship and the airport’s dedication to airline success,” said Ren Camacho, President and CEO of the Akron-Canton Airport. “We’re thrilled to launch these two markets that serve both the leisure and business communities, we anticipate long term success for each route.”

  • Nashville, TN (BNA) will operate year-round on Thursday, Friday, Sunday and Monday, starting May 26, 2022. The route will be operated aboard the E190/E195.
  • Hartford, CT (BDL) will launch as a summer seasonal route and operate Friday and Monday, starting June 3, 2022. The route will be operated aboard the A220-300.

“We welcomed Breeze Airways to Columbus and Akron-Canton less than a year ago, and it’s great to hear that they already intend to expand their flights coming into and out of Ohio,” said Ohio Governor Mike DeWine. “Expanded air service like this is important for Ohio’s economy because it gives industries increased access to Ohio’s markets and provides a financial boost for our local communities and companies.”

Breeze, which began service in May, 2021 primarily in the east and southeast of the United States, is now expanding across the U.S. with 77 routes between 28 cities in 18 states. 

“Vibrant air service is an important component of Ohio’s growing economy, and JobsOhio is pleased to announce more success with the Air Service Restoration Program,” said J.P. Nauseef, JobsOhio President and CEO. “Ohio’s businesses and consumer travel are creating highly sustainable routes and making Ohio’s airports a bigger and bigger draw for future service.”

Breeze’s two new routes will bring CAK’s total number of current, nonstop destinations to 17. Thirteen routes are year-round: Charlotte, Charleston, Chicago, Nashville, Orlando, Palm Beach, Philadelphia, Punta Gorda/Ft. Myers, Sarasota/Bradenton, Savannah/Hilton Head, St. Pete/Clearwater, Tampa, Washington D.C. Four routes are seasonal, Ft. Myers, Hartford, Myrtle Beach and New Orleans.

“It's so exciting to announce our fifth and sixth nonstop destinations from Akron-Canton, to Hartford, CT and Nashville, TN,” said Breeze’s Founder and CEO David Neeleman. “In by-passing hubs for nonstop service, Breeze gets you there twice as fast for about half the price."
