Silver Airways is launching twice-weekly non-stop service between Jacksonville and Nassau on May 28.
According to the Fort Lauderdale-based regional carrier, the flights will represent the first-ever non-stop service between the two destinations.
Silver Airways’ service on the Jacksonville-Nassau route calls for flight 3M 134 to depart Jacksonville International Airport (IATA code JAX) at 2:41 p.m. on Wednesdays and Saturdays from May 28 and land at Nassau’s Lynden Pindling International Airport (NAS) at 4:44 p.m.
In the other direction, the flight (which will use the same flight number) will leave NAS at 11:50 a.m. on Wednesdays and Saturdays from May 28 and arrive at JAX at 2:11 p.m.
Silver Airways also recently announced it is starting non-stop service to Nassau from Tampa, Fort Myers and West Palm Beach, starting on Memorial Day weekend.
To promote its new routes to Nassau, Silver Airways is offering introductory one-way fares via its silverairways.com website through 11:59 pm Eastern Time on March 31, for travel between June 1 and June 29, 2016.
