Friday February 7th, JetBlue founder and prolific aviation entrepreneur David Neelman officially launched his fifth airline, the third one he started in the United States.
While it has been no secret that he has been in the process of starting a new US budget carrier, the code name for the project in the industry had been named Moxy Airlines.
It was revealed on Friday that the official name of the airline will be Breeze Airways.
The management company that will run the airline will be known as Breeze Aviation. The airline will be headquartered out of Salt Lake City Utah, but it is not clear if Salt Lake City will serve as a main hub for the airline or not.
The business model for the new airline will be a point to point airline in which the airline will fly to multiple destinations from each of the airports that it flies from. No announcement was made Friday about what airports the new airline would be serving. However, it had been previously announced earlier this year that Breeze Airways would be leasing 30 Embraer Regional Jets from Neelman's Brazilian airline Azul so that the new airline could start flying by the end of 2020.
It was also revealed that the new airline had filed its paperwork with the FAA to get certification to fly.
In addition to the 30 leased jets from Azul, Neelman ordered 60 Airbus A220 planes in 2018 for the airline.
