Silver Airways has begun selling tickets for new scheduled services starting on October 1 from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport to Greenville, Tupelo, Hattiesburg-Laurel and Meridian in Mississippi, as well as Muscle Shoals in Alabama.

Since its inception in December 2011, Silver Airways has grown its route network by 60 per cent. The carrier has added new destinations to its intra-Florida network, which Silver Airways says is now the largest in the state in terms of the total number of gateways and daily flights involved.

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

 

Silver Airways has also established hubs at Washington Dulles International Airport and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

At the same time, the company has invested in new technology and equipment, modernizing and upgrading its fleet with the addition of 15 Saab 340Bplus regional airliners between December 2011 and September 2012.

An additional six Saab 340Bplus turboprops will enter the Silver Airways fleet by January 1. Each Saab 340Bplus seats 34 passengers.

Silver Airways will deploy Saab 340Bplus aircraft on its new routes to Mississippi and Alabama. According to the regional airline, the Saab 340Bplus is among the world’s most eco-friendly commercial aircraft, burning 60 per cent less fuel per hour than a 70-seat regional jet, while emitting proportionally lower levels of carbon dioxide.

“Not only can you feel good about flying our eco-friendly planes, but our executive-level in-flight service will also make you feel like a VIP every time you travel with us,” says Darrell Richardson, CEO of Silver Airways.
