Barclays and Breeze Airways Introduce New Co-Branded Visa Signature Credit Card



At the intersection of air travel and finance comes a co-branded credit card between Barclays US Consumer Bank and Breeze Airways: the Breeze Easy™ Visa Signature® credit card. The card’s introduction comes less than three years after Breeze Airways commenced operations, and the Breeze Easy card is also the airline’s first co-branded card.  

“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, Breeze Airways Founder and CEO. “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 designed to cater to the preferences of travelers who favor the convenience and efficiency of flying from smaller, regional airports. According to a survey by Wakefield Research, 64% of flyers prefer airlines that operate out of local airports, citing the drawbacks of larger hubs, such as long security lines and crowded spaces.  

Some of the perks of the co-branded card include an introductory $500 sign-up bonus, priority boarding for card members, complimentary WiFi, and 7,500 bonus points after spending $10,000 per membership year. Cardholders also have a chance to earn up to 2X, 4X, and 10X the BreezePoints on select purchases. Points never expire. 

“We’re thrilled to be joining Breeze and Barclays, who are enhancing the travel experience by delivering more rewards to Breeze guests. 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,” said Kirk Stuart, Senior Vice President, Head of North America Merchant, Acquiring & Enablement for Visa. 

Barclays US Consumer Bank’s CEO, Denny Nealon, added, “Barclays is committed to being the premier choice for America’s best brands, bringing unique value to their loyal customers. Breeze Airways is unlocking affordable, elevated air travel to so many underserved markets, and Barclays is thrilled to help Breeze Easy Visa cardmembers earn rewards for travel and more.” 

The introduction of the co-branded credit card coincides with the launch of Breeze Airways’ new loyalty program, Breezy Rewards™, aimed at enriching the flying experience for its customers. The revamped program allows members to earn points for all Breeze purchases while accessing benefits such as seamless booking and flight management, no fees to cancel or change their booking, and Free Family seating. The airline also has a new simplified fare-only option.
