Breeze Airways announced, in November, it will launch nonstop flight service from Ogden-Hinckley Airport (OGD) to John Wayne Airport in Orange County (SNA), California beginning February 21, 2024.
An Airbus A220 seating around 137 passengers will fly the route four days per week.
Breeze currently serves Provo, joining it as the second city in Utah for the airline. Provo routes include nonstop and one-stop options to seven destinations. In total, Breeze flies to 45 cities across 27 states.
Ogden marks the seventh new underserved market added recently, including cities like Grand Junction, Madison and Evansville. “Ogden has a rich travel history having once served as a transfer point between the Union Pacific and Central Pacific railroads,” said Breeze Airways’ President Tom Doxey. “Today, Breeze is writing a new chapter for Ogden – one in which its residents get access to simple, affordable, and convenient air travel to highly desirable destinations like Orange County.” John Wayne Airport (SNA) is the closest airport to Disneyland.
The low-cost carrier offers amenities like two free checked bags, priority boarding and premium seating known as “Nicest” on the A220. Breeze also provides family seating, flight credits and allows changes up 15 minutes before departure without fees.
Earlier this year, Breeze earned recognition from Travel + Leisure magazine readers as a top 5 domestic airline for the second straight year. The carrier aims to provide simple, affordable and convenient air travel to underserved routes across the country.
“Some local critics have questioned whether Ogden is a good fit for airline service. Ogden-Hinckley Airport Manager Bryant Garrett has maintained all along that it wasn’t low profits or low traffic that prompted Allegiant and Avelo to leave. Allegiant left because the operator couldn’t hire enough pilots while Avelo departed because the firm could make more money elsewhere, he said.”
