Silver Airways will deploy Saab 340Bplus aircraft on its new Fort Myers routes. One of the most advanced turboprops operating today, the 34-seat Saab 340Bplus is distinguished among the world’s most eco-friendly aircraft, burning 60% less fuel per hour than a 70-seat regional jet. Each Silver Airways Saab 340Bplus is outfitted with plush leather seating, ample legroom, large and easily accessible overhead bins, personalized flight attendant service, on-board lavatories, and an active noise reduction system, delivering a superior in-flight experience.
“Florida is our home and largest market, so we’re understandably proud to continue spreading our wings throughout the Sunshine State,” said Dave Pflieger, President and CEO of Silver Airways. “These new flights will provide a convenient alternative to driving for our valued business and leisure customers in Fort Myers and the surrounding Lee County area.”
