SILVER AIRWAYS TO LAUNCH SERVICE FROM CHARLESTON INTERNATIONAL

2/26/2020
 

CHARLESTON, S.C. – The roster of airlines serving Charleston International Airport will grow again this spring and, with it, connectivity between the Lowcountry and the Sunshine state will get easier for travelers. Silver Airways today announced it will launch new flights on May 21, from Charleston to Orlando, Tampa and Ft. Lauderdale.

The Ft. Lauderdale-based carrier will begin daily service to Orlando International Airport, with those planes continuing service to Key West. Flights to Tampa International will operate three days per week and flights to Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International will operate four days per week.

"We are thrilled to introduce low fares and nonstop service between South Carolina’s most iconic city and three favorite Sunshine State destinations with Silver Airways’ safe, reliable and customer-friendly service," said Silver Airways Senior Vice President Commercial and Finance Pedro Motta.

"It is exciting to welcome Silver Airways to Charleston International and begin this partnership. Silver’s arrival represents a milestone for our airport, as we will now offer the good people of our region service on ten airlines," said Paul G. Campbell, Jr., Chief Executive Officer of Charleston County Aviation Authority. "Silver is a strong regional airline with an extensive network. Their new service will not only expand our options to Ft. Lauderdale, they are opening the door to new markets in Tampa, Orlando and beyond."

Operating from its hubs in Fort Lauderdale, Orlando and Tampa, Silver Airways boasts the most routes within Florida and between Florida and the Bahamas.

With these new routes, Charleston International will now offer nonstop service to 30 cities across 18 states, the District of Columbia and the United Kingdom.

Silver will introduce the 70-passenger ATR-600 aircraft for the Charleston flights. The new planes are specifically designed for short-haul markets, but with the same look, feel and customer amenities of larger jetliners.

"Silver Airways’ dedication to customer service is a perfect complement to the airport’s commitment to an optimal passenger experience and the Lowcountry’s proud reputation of unrivaled hospitality," said Helen Hill, Chief Executive Officer of Explore Charleston and Chairman of the Aviation Authority Board. "Establishing these new and expanded routes is a win-win for Floridians and Charleston area residents alike. It is also further evidence of our community’s economic strength and the airport’s positive momentum."
