The Utah-based airline Breeze Airways will direct flights to 3 brand new routes from San Bernardino International Airport from August this year. It will be offering nonstop flights to San Francisco International Airport (SFO) with one-way prices as low as $49 right now. The flights will initiate on August 4th, 2022. 

About San Bernardino Intl. Airport 

San Bernardino International Airport, or SBD, has been serving charter flights since 2010. Still, the final commercial flight tickets were issued in April 2017, when a low-cost Mexican carrier scheduled travels to and from Guadalajara, Mexico, from a $20.5 million international arrivals facility.

However, those flights were eventually rescheduled and canceled.

In the years afterward, SBD has grown into a logistics hub, with industry behemoths like UPS, FedEx, and Amazon establishing operations.

Breeze Airways – An option for the Betterment!

According to Eric Fletcher, the airline’s head of legal and corporate affairs, Breeze was drawn to the military base because of its exponential expansion in an area where thousands of people travel to Los Angeles every day to fly.

“We’ve got 5 million people in the Inland Empire, and giving them other options is our job; it’s our responsibility. Breeze Airways couldn’t be a better foundational partner.”

The San Bernardino International Airport terminal has been vacant for years, but that may not be the case for much longer.

Later this summer, as part of a big expansion for the new airline Breeze Airways, nonstop flights to San Francisco will be available, starting at $49 each way.

“So many of the big airlines have forgotten or ignored communities around the country. There are phenomenal communities and phenomenal airports that do not have sufficient air service that the population warrants.”

Breeze Airways will operate flights from Los Angeles International Airport as well.

The first flight to San Bernardino is set to take place on August 4th. Even though there will only be one scheduled departure each day, airport authorities believe there is space for expansion.

“What you’re standing in is a terminal that will ultimately handle 10 gates. There are four [gates] to start, which is plenty to support our new partners at Breeze.”

The area was home to the booming Norton Air Force Base for decades. However, some economists believe that the factory’s closure in 1994 cost the region 20,000 jobs. In the early 2000s, the airport was resurrected and is currently a key logistics and transport center.

Passengers will soon be allowed to take scheduled flights out of town.

“This has always been a military base, so it never really had this opportunity to explore as a passenger terminal. This is a big first.”
