Intra-Florida and Florida-Bahamas fares discounted on select departures for travel August 13 to October 16, 2013

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.--()--Silver Airways, Florida’s hometown airline and the largest U.S. carrier to The Bahamas, announced today that it has completed its comprehensive fleet upgrade covering the neighboring markets. As of May 2013, the Fort Lauderdale-based carrier will deploy state-or-the-art, 34-seat Saab 340Bplus aircraft exclusively on all 14 routes within the State of Florida, as well as its nine routes between Florida and The Bahamas. The new Saabs replace smaller 19-seat Beechcraft 1900D aircraft, offering greater comfort, added cargo capacity and class-leading fuel economy.

To celebrate the fleet upgrade, Silver Airways has launched a new sale offering discounts as follows:

  • Intra-Florida one-way fares starting from $55* (taxes and fees included and restrictions apply)
  • Florida to The Bahamas one-way fares starting from $98** (taxes and fees included and restrictions apply)
  • The Bahamas to Florida one-way fares starting from $142** (taxes and fees included and restrictions apply)

One of the most advanced turboprops operating today, the 34-seat Saab 340Bplus is distinguished among the world’s most eco-friendly aircraft, burning 60% less fuel per hour than a 70-seat regional jet. Each Silver Airways Saab 340Bplus is outfitted with plush leather seating, ample legroom, large and easily accessible overhead bins, personalized flight attendant service, on-board lavatories, and an active noise reduction system, delivering a superior in-flight experience.
