Madison, WI – The Dane County Regional Airport (DCRA) celebrated the kickoff of Breeze Airways’ new, twice-weekly non-stop service from Madison to Tampa, Florida (TPA) at a news conference held at DCRA. Airport Director Kim Jones and Steve Sye, Director of Airports and Guest Services at Breeze Airways, recognized this important addition to DCRA’s service and sent the first flight on its way. New Breeze Airways non-stop service to Orlando will begin February 14th, and non-stop service to Los Angeles will begin May 22.

Strong passenger demand continues to drive flight service additions at the Dane County Regional Airport. "Breeze Airways’ commitment to south-central Wisconsin has a significant economic impact on the Dane County region," said Dane County Executive Joe Parisi. “Additional non-stop flights to more destinations help to make Dane County a world-class destination to live, work and play.”

“We are pleased to welcome Breeze Airways as a new carrier,” said Airport Director Kim Jones. “MSN’s air service development team is constantly working hard on building relationships and making a strong case for new and expanding service. The best thing that our travelers can do is continue to choose to fly local from MSN,” Jones continued. “So, get ready to escape the winter weather, travel non-stop to Tampa and soon Orlando and enjoy the relaxing, convenient experience you get here at MSN.”

Passengers at the gate enjoyed tropical mocktails, destination guides, and gifts courtesy of DCRA and Visit Tampa to celebrate the inaugural flight.

The Dane County Regional Airport provides seamless, low-stress, and affordable options for both leisure and business travelers with daily arrivals and departures, non-stop and one-stop service that provides access to nearly every worldwide destination.

In addition, DCRA is celebrating 85 years of commercial flight in 2024 and recently opened a 90,000 square-foot expansion of the south terminal.
