Breeze Airways has added three new destinations from Northwest Arkansas National Airport (XNA), officials announced on Wednesday.

The airline will offer non-stop flights to Orlando, Fla. and Phoenix, Ariz., and a one-stop “Breezethru” (no plane change) flight to Charleston, S.C. starting next year.

All three flights will operate on Mondays and Fridays, according to the Breeze website. Service to Phoenix begins Friday, Feb. 17, 2023, while the flights to Orlando and Charleston start Friday, March 3, 2023.

Service to Orlando and Phoenix start at $49 and flights to Charleston start at $69, according to a news release. However, introductory flights as low as $39 were available on the Breeze website when this story was first published.

Guests can choose from two price bundles offered for the three new destinations – “Nice” and “Nicer” with the more expensive option including priority boarding, baggage allowances, extra legroom and a light snack.

“Breeze Airways continues to be a reliable, affordable option for our leisure travel customers,” said Andrew Branch, COO of XNA. “The addition of these three new routes demonstrates Breeze’s commitment to XNA, and we are excited for the opportunity to grow this partnership and better serve our customers.”

Frontier Airlines last year announced non-stop flights from XNA to Orlando, but that service is no longer offered, according to the Frontier website. Allegiant offers seasonal direct service from XNA to Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport, which is about 30 miles southeast of Phoenix.
