Air travel all but came to a halt during the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, the United States government provided a multi-billion dollar bailout to the industry and, later in 2020, helped cover the costs of bringing furloughed airline employees back to work. Despite these financial rough patches, it seems the industry is bouncing back as folks get vaccinated and start traveling again.

Nothing underscores this point better, perhaps, than the new U.S.-based airlines that are debuting on the heels of the height of the pandemic. If you’re looking for low prices, airline tickets from Breeze Airways or Avelo Airlines could open up a world of possibility.

In fact, budget airlines Avelo and Breeze kicked off flights just weeks apart from each other this spring. Offering some of the lowest fare flights in the world, here's everything you need to know about these two new budget airlines, from costs and destinations to how they compare to existing budget airlines and big-name airlines alike.
