Breeze Airways is adding a new nonstop route from JAX to New York City’s Westchester Airport (HPN) starting June 30, from just $79 one way. Westchester is located just north of Manhattan.

This marks the eighth nonstop route for Breeze from JAX and the first new route announcement since the airline announced in March they would become the newest carrier at JAX, the single largest air service announcement in the airport’s history. 

“We are ecstatic to see Breeze grow in Jacksonville before their first flight has taken off,” Jacksonville Aviation Authority (JAA) CEO Mark VanLoh said. “The airline’s nonstop service to Westchester Airport will provide travelers with low fares and more options when traveling to New York.” 

JAX to:
•Westchester, NY (HPN) (Thurs, Sat and Sun, starting June 30, Nice from $79* and Nicer from $129).

JAX Airport Statement Regarding Masks in the Terminal

According to a statement issued by the TSA on April 18, the agency is no longer enforcing the Federal mask mandate at transportation hubs in the US, including at Jacksonville International Airport (JAX). Effective immediately, masks are no longer mandatory at JAX. 

However, those travelers who would feel more comfortable voluntarily wearing a mask while in the airport are encouraged to continue doing so.

Breeze Airways will be the newest carrier at Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) and offer new, nonstop service to seven cities starting this spring including: Columbus, Oh., Hartford, Conn., Las Vegas, Nev., New Orleans, La., Providence, R.I., Norfolk, Va., and Richmond, Va.  

“This is a really great day for Breeze and for Jacksonville”, said Breeze Founder and CEO David Neeleman.  “We like to think of ourselves as the Seriously Nice airline, bringing friendly service, low fares and nonstops to places that need them, so you don’t have to drive long distances or fly through connecting hubs. With Breeze, we’ll get there twice as fast, for about half the price.

“This is the single largest air service announcement in the airport’s history,” JAA CEO Mark VanLoh said. “Breeze Airways’ arrival in Jacksonville will be a game changer for Northeast Florida. The airline will offer service to several of our largest unserved markets. We look forward to their continued growth at JAX.”

Breeze’s new nonstop flights are also likely to bring additional tourism to the Northeast Florida region: “To say we are excited about this announcement would be putting it mildly,” Visit Jacksonville President & CEO, Michael Corrigan said. “We are thrilled about this new partnership with Breeze for their huge commitment to Jacksonville and the Northeast Florida market and the ability to serve currently unserved destinations to our area. We expect big things to come in the future.”
