Barclays and Breeze Airways Unveil the Breeze Easy Visa Signature Co-Branded Credit Card

Airline also debuts Breezy Rewards loyalty program. 73% of surveyed fliers prefer a rewards credit card from an airline like Breeze that flies from a smaller airport convenient to their home.

Breeze Airways and Barclays US Consumer Bank today announced the debut of the Breeze Easy Visa Signature® credit card. 

Breeze’s first co-branded credit card comes less than three years after the airline’s launch and offers up to 10X BreezePoints for Breeze purchases including airfare and trip add-ons, such as premium seating, additional checked bags and even inflight snacks and beverages. Other benefits include complimentary inflight Wi-Fi on Breeze’s Airbus fleet, priority boarding and accelerated earn on a wide range of everyday purchases, including grocery stores and restaurants. 

Breeze’s focus on jet service from underserved regional airports, along with its credit card partnership with Barclays, addresses some flyers’ most common pain points, as revealed in a recent survey conducted by Wakefield Research:

  • 64% of flyers would prefer to fly out of a smaller, regional airport with nonstop flights, over a large hub, while 73% would prefer a rewards credit card from an airline that flies from an airport that’s convenient to their home. 
  • Over half of regional flyers avoid major airports because of long security lines (63%) and large crowds (53%), and nearly half find expensive parking (49%) and congestion that could delay flights (47%) as turn-offs.
  • 61% of those surveyed would likely apply for an airline’s rewards credit card if the airline flew out of a nearby regional airport.

“We’ve expanded rapidly since we took to the skies in May 2021. Today, we announced five more cities, so we now offer affordable flights from 56 cities across the US and are the largest carrier in terms of destinations served in 11 of those markets,” said David Neeleman, Founder and CEO, Breeze Airways. “Combined with Barclays’ trusted track record with major travel brands, I’m confident the Breeze Easy Visa will be THE airline card of choice for Breeze guests and frequent travelers.”

The Breeze Easy Visa Signature card is a partnership between Breeze Airways, one of the nation’s newest point-to-point airlines, Barclays, a leading co-branded credit card issuer, along with Visa, a world leader in digital payments.

“We’re thrilled to be joining Breeze and Barclays who are enhancing the travel experience by delivering more rewards to Breeze guests,” said Kirk Stuart, senior vice president, head of North America merchant, acquiring & enablement, Visa. “At Visa, we’re committed to being the best way for travelers to pay and be paid, wherever they choose to fly. We’re proud of the unique value we provide to Breeze and Barclays’ customers to meet their evolving loyalty needs.”

In tandem with the debut of the Breeze Easy Visa, the airline also announced the launch of its new loyalty program. Dubbed Breezy Rewards, the program gives members the ability to earn BreezePoints for all Breeze purchases and access other benefits such as no change or cancel fees, seamless booking and flight management tools, and Free Family seating.

BreezePoints were initially introduced when the airline launched in 2021. By rebranding the guest rewards program as Breezy Rewards, Breeze is bringing to life the benefits of being a Breeze Easy Visa cardmember.

Breeze also introduced a new ‘fare-only’ option for travelers who desire the most basic experience. With the No Flex Fare, flight changes are not permitted but partial credit is issued for cancellations. Guests earn 1X BreezePoints and have up to 24-months to rebook using their remaining credit without an additional fee or penalty. As part of this change, Breeze also enhanced its Nice bundle to include a carry-on bag and added complimentary WiFi to both its Nicer and Nicest bundles.
