Breeze, Spirit, El Al, Southwest, Alaska all ramping up Florida service, Norse Atlantic beginning London to Fort Lauderdale and Orlando nonstops

Breeze Airways have announced several new nonstops to/from Florida beginning in May.

  • Jacksonville to Los Angeles and Pittsburgh
  • Fort Myers to Hartford and Providence
  • Tampa to Hartford, Portland (ME) and Providence
  • Orlando to Providence
  • Sarasota/Bradenton to Providence

Spirit will add a fifth daily Orlando-San Juan nonstop and a second daily Fort Lauderdale-San Juan nonstop in June. Ironically both routes compete with jetBlue whom Spirit is in a proposed merger agreement with. JetBlue flies five times daily from both Orlando and Fort Lauderdale to San Juan. Southwest also flies both routes, and Frontier also flies Orlando-San Juan.

El Al, the national long-haul carrier of Israel will increase Miami-Tel Aviv service in May to six days a week, and begin periodic (High Holy Days)seasonal weekday service to Fort Lauderdale to/from Tel Aviv in September. FLL-TLV becomes permanent and year-round in Summer 2024.

Southwest will begin Orlando-Long Beach weekend only nonstop service this fall.

Alaska is launching San Diego-Tampa this summer and resuming Portland (OR)-Fort Lauderdale this fall.

Norse Atlantic will add new nonstop service from Orlando and Fort Lauderdale to London-Gatwick in June. Orlando flights operate four times weekly and Fort Lauderdale the other three days of the week. Norse currently serves Oslo from Fort Lauderdale and will resume Orlando-Oslo flights late next month. Fort Lauderdale-Berlin flights are scheduled to resume in the summer.
