David Neeleman, founder of JetBlue, finally filed papers for his new airline, formerly called Moxy, now called Breeze. According to some reports about Moxy, it looks like the airline targeted secondary airports in cities, like BKL. It would be great to see this new carrier at Burke. From a Providence news source:
"In June 2019, GoLocal reported of then-Moxy: De facto, Providence would be the hub, “Moxy seems keen on secondary airports in the country’s biggest metro areas like Boston, New York, Washington, Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Providence, outside Boston, features prominently as an example in Moxy’s presentation.”
According to the reports, “On a map of prospective routes, it shows Providence flights to Allegiant-like airports in Florida (i.e., Orlando Sanford and St. Petersburg) and California (i.e., Oakland, San Jose, Contra Costa, Orange County, Burbank, Ontario and McClellan-Palomar, north of San Diego). Other dots from Providence include Phoenix Mesa, Rocky Mountain Airport near Denver, Concord near Charlotte, Fort Worth’s Meacham Airport and Burke Lakefront Airport

For Breeze, would Providence still be a hub? Burke would make a great hub.
