Silver Airways is launching its first-ever scheduled services from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) on August 1.

Under U.S. Essential Air Service (EAS) contracts, Silver Airways will operate non-stop service six days a week from Atlanta to Gainesville Regional Airport (GNV), serving the Greater Gainesville and Alachua County area in northern Florida; and daily service to Greenbrier Valley Airport (LWB) in Lewisburg, West Virginia.


Silver Airways is the renamed Gulfstream International Airlines following acquisition of certain of that carrier's assets by Victory Park Capital in May 2011 following the airline's bankruptcy. Silver Airways' fleet includes 12 34-seat Saab 340Bplus turboprops and 21 19-seat Beech 1900Ds. This is a computer graphic image of a Beech 1900D in Silver Airways' livery.

VPAA Co. dba/Gulfstream International Airlines, owned by Victory Park Capital since May 2011 when it bought selected assets of Gulfstream International Airlines after the carrier had filed for bankruptcy in November 2010, renamed itself Silver Airways on December 15, 2011

“We’re extremely pleased to grow our footprint in the Southeast and provide passengers in northern Florida and Greenbrier Valley with a convenient and affordable carrier option out of Atlanta,” says Darrell Richardson, CEO of Silver Airways.

On the U.S. East Coast, Silver Airways operates scheduled passenger service in Florida, Pennsylvania, New York and West Virginia, mainly under a codeshare agreement with United Airlines. The airline also has an extensive and growing route network between Florida and the Bahamas.

Florida-based Silver Airways will also launch new EAS services from Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) to four communities in West Virginia and two in Pennsylvania on August 1, further expanding its reach in the Northeast U.S.
