According to Silver Airways, it already offers more routes within Florida and between Florida and the Bahamas than any other airline. Silver Airways recently started new service between Fort Lauderdale and Jacksonville, and between Orlando and Key West.

Silver Airways says its augmented Florida schedule will offer new connection opportunities for travel to its destinations throughout the Bahamas, as well as to additional destinations outside Florida on flights operated by its codeshare and interline partners.

The carrier’s increased intra-Florida flying will include additional services to and from Fort Lauderdale, Key West, Orlando, Fort Myers, Tampa and Pensacola.
