Breeze Airways is coming home.

The startup airline announced Provo, Utah, as its newest destination Friday with nonstop flights to Las Vegas, Los Angeles and San Francisco. That will give the carrier its first service from Utah, where its headquarters are located in the suburbs south of Salt Lake City.

David Neeleman, Breeze’s colorful founder and CEO, wasted little time in playing up the connection.

“It’s been the question on everyone’s lips since we first opened our headquarters – when are you flying from Utah?” he asked in a statement touting the airline’s newest destination. “We’re excited to continue growing and hiring from here, and now flying from Utah too.”

As for Provo (PVU), the airport sits about 50 miles south of downtown Salt Lake City. Breeze will be just the second carrier to offer regular passenger service there. It will join Allegiant, which flies nonstop from Provo to eight destinations. The carriers will go head-to-head on the route to Los Angeles, which Allegiant will resume flying on Sept. 2, according to that company's website.

Breeze’s new Provo (PVU) service will operate as follows.
