Low-cost direct flights debut from San Bernardino to Las Vegas

Those hoping to raise a ruckus around town and buffets of Sin City can arrive even speedier with a new non-stop flight from the Inland Empire.

Direct departures from low-cost carrier Breeze Airways will soon be presented from the San Bernardino International Airport (SBD) to the Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas.

The flights are scheduled to start on Feb. 16, 2023. Seats are accessible for as low as $29 one way.

Roundtrip flights will run each Thursday and Sunday. Travelers flying out of SBD can now interface nonstop to San Francisco, Hartford, Connecticut, and Provo, Utah.

Travelers will be flying off on an Airbus A220 airplane that incorporates three seating classes — Nice, Nicer, and Nicest.

Travelers flying out of SBD can access onsite parking for five dollars per day.

Breeze Airways, an Utah-based airline, focuses on budget airfare “connecting travelers in underserved cities with air service to the U.S. destinations they want to visit most.”

Established by David Neeleman, Breeze Airways is the fifth airline launched by Neeleman, who additionally established JetBlue Airways, Morris Air, Azul Airlines in Brazil, and WestJet in Canada.

“Breeze has made an important impact in our community as residents have embraced affordable fares and exciting destinations,” said SBD CEO Michael Burrows. “San Bernardino International Airport continues to elevate its presence in the Southern California region and on the U.S. route map as we now offer coast-to-coast service.”

The carrier says it doesn’t charge cancellation or flight-changing fees, even as long as 15 minutes before flight time. The organization uses an app for clients to book, manage or cancel flights and doesn’t work a traditional call center. Visitors will speak with staff by means of text message, Facebook Messenger or email correspondence.
