Provo, Utah, was named as the startup airline’s newest destination on Friday, with nonstop flights to Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. This will be the carrier’s debut service from Utah, where its headquarters are located in the Salt Lake City suburbs.

Breeze’s creator and CEO, David Neeleman, lost no time in explaining the new routes.

“It’s been on everyone’s lips since we first established our offices – when are you flying from Utah?” he said in a statement announcing the airline’s newest route. “We’re delighted to keep developing and recruiting from here, and we’re now flying from Utah as well.”

The airport in Provo (PVU) is roughly 50 miles south of downtown Salt Lake City. Breeze will be just the second airline to provide regular passenger service in the area. It will join Allegiant, which now operates nonstop flights from Provo to eight locations. According to Allegiant’s website, the airlines will compete on the route to Los Angeles, which Allegiant will commence flying on Sept. 2.

The following is how Breeze’s new Provo (PVU) service will work.
