Silver Airways, Florida’s hometown airline and the largest U.S. carrier to The

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)
