Fort Lauderdale, Fla. (October 13, 2014) – Starting November 6, 2014, Silver Airways is further expanding its already extensive Florida schedule by adding nearly 40 percent more flights within the Sunshine State.  As Florida’s hometown airline, Silver offers more routes within Florida and between Florida and the Bahamas than any other airline.  The increased flying further cements Silver’s position in Florida as it increases service to include over 560 weekly flights to 10 Florida cities, including 15 different non-stop routes within the state.

“We look forward to even further expanding our intra-Florida footprint and giving our customers even more travel options with greater frequencies between key destinations throughout the Sunshine State,” said Silver Airways CEO Sami Teittinen.  “Our schedules are ideal for business travelers looking for multiple flight options that allow for a full day of work in either city, and leisure travelers enjoy the convenience of flying over the hassles and expense of driving.”

In addition to intra-Florida flying, Silver’s schedule offers connection opportunities for travel to Silver’s popular destinations throughout the Bahamas, as well as additional destinations outside of Florida via its codeshare and numerous interline partners.
