Silver Airways is launching new non-stop service from West Palm Beach to North Eleuthera and Freeport in The Bahamas on November 21.

According to Silver Airways, these flights will give business and leisure travelers the only non-stop service between West Palm Beach and Orlando.

The new destinations will also provide connections to codeshare partner United Airlines’ flights to Chicago O’Hare, Houston Bush Intercontinental, Washington Dulles, Newark and Denver.

To promote the launch of these new routes, Silver Airways is offering one-way sale fares starting from $69 (on the Orlando-West Palm Beach route). These will be available through 11:59pm EDT on September 9, at www.silverairways.com.

“This latest expansion in our operations is all about better serving the broader needs of our customers here in Florida,” says David Pflieger, Jr., president and CEO of Silver Airways. “Within the state, we’re improving connectivity from north to south and extending our reach to The Bahamas.”

Adds Pflieger: “At the same time, we’re better aligning our service to sync most efficiently with United Airlines’ global reach so Silver Airways customers can reap the full benefits of our codeshare partnership.”

Silver Airways will operate 34-seat Saab 340Bplus turboprops on its new routes.  Silver operates the largest fleet of Saab 340Bplus regional airliners in North America.

According to Silver Airways, its new West Palm Beach and Tallahassee flights will improve its connectivity on one-stop intra-Florida itineraries.

The schedule enhancements include new weekday one-stop service between both Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach to Tallahassee and between Fort Lauderdale and Pensacola via Orlando and Tampa. Adjusted flight times also create new connections for customers traveling between Fort Lauderdale and Macon, Georgia via Orlando.
