HOLLYWOOD, Fla.: Silver Airways, America’s leading independent regional airline, today announced new safe, reliable, and customer-focused service with nonstop twice-weekly flights from Jacksonville, Florida to each of Tampa and Fort Lauderdale.
In addition to nonstop service between North Florida and two of Florida’s most important destinations, these new routes will also provide convenient and seamless connections to Silver’s extensive network throughout the Sunshine State, the Bahamas, the Caribbean, and destinations domestically and worldwide through Silver’s codeshare and interline ticketing partners. Silver serves more intra-Florida destinations than any other air carrier.
“We are delighted to serve Jacksonville and the surrounding North Florida and Georgia communities and in particular, the thousands of men and women of the United States Armed Services stationed in the Jacksonville area," said Steve Rossum, Chief Executive Officer of Silver Airways. “Beyond its revered military presence, the Jacksonville area offers travelers relaxing beaches, world-class golf courses, unforgettable eco-adventures, professional sports, exciting nightlife, a vibrant and growing business community, world-class universities, and deep-rooted history including St. Augustine, America’s oldest city," added Rossum. “We are excited to be back in JAX.”
"Silver Airways’ new nonstop service to Tampa and Ft. Lauderdale offers a welcome connection between Northeast Florida and other parts of the state,” Jacksonville Aviation Authority (JAA) CEO Mark VanLoh said. “We look forward to working with Silver as they continue to grow at Jacksonville International Airport.”
