WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — There is a new way to travel in and out of West Palm Beach.

Breeze Airways joins the many new airlines landing at Palm Beach International Airport.

The airline's inaugural flight landed Saturday morning at PBIA from Charleston, South Carolina.

The plane received a water canon salute from the airport's fire department.

"It's great to be able to serve destinations that don't have nonstop service here," Breeze Airways CEO David Neeleman said.

PBIA is the company's 18th destination. For the next few months, Breeze will fly round-trip every Saturday to six cities in the U.S. Those include New Orleans, Charleston, Akron, Ohio, Columbus, Ohio, Richmond, Virginia, and Norfolk, Virginia. The goal is to expand services to other cities soon.

"This is just the beginning," Neeleman said. "We'll add a lot more. It's kind of a seasonal thing but we'll be back with a lot more flights in the future."

Flights range from $39 to $59 depending on the destination. There are no fees for changing or canceling a flight.
