The initial network will code 15 cities on the East Coast and in the Midwest, South and Texas. The deal with Azul for 28 E195s was axed in favour of 15 E190s from Nordic Aviation Capital. Breeze also confirms it acquired the operating certificate of Compass Airlines.
Breeze Airways now intends to begin operations with scheduled routes from two US airports in March 2021. The carrier will no longer begin with charter services and A220s have been delayed to at least August 2021. Breeze also raised US$83 million from equity investors through a Series A financing.
Danish lessor Nordic Aviation Capital has delivered one E190, serial 19000070, to Breeze Airways on lease. This is the first aircraft to deliver as part of a fifteen E190 aircraft lease agreement made with Breeze.

Pasifika Air of New Zealand plans to take bookings for flights to the Cook Islands from March 2021, despite no planes (they should not be difficult to find nowadays), and there are no signs of travel restrictions lifting. The company plans to launch operations in June with Boeing aircraft on lease.
