Also Coming Soon: Discounted Fares for Active-Duty Military on All Flights


Fort Lauderdale, Fla. (February 14, 2019) – Whether soaking up the sun and throwing back an ice-cold beer at one of the country’s best beach honky tonks Flora-Bama or traveling to/from Pensacola’s Naval Air Station, you no longer have to spend more than nine hours driving to travel between the Florida/Alabama Gulf Coast and South Florida. As the leading airline of the I-10 Gulf Coast region serving destinations from Pensacola, Destin-Fort Walton Beach and Tallahassee, Silver Airways today started daily nonstop service between Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) and Pensacola International Airport (PNS), ideal for business, leisure and military travelers.


To celebrate the new nonstop Fort Lauderdale – Pensacola service, Silver is offering fares from $89* available at SilverAirways.com for a limited time for travel on or before May 22, 2019, for ticketing before February 28, 2019.


In addition, Silver is soon introducing new discounted fares for active-duty military on all flights.


“We couldn’t be happier to serve business, leisure and military travelers with Silver’s affordable, convenient and time-saving way to travel between South Florida and the Florida/Alabama Gulf Coast region with our safe, reliable and customer-friendly service,” said Silver Airways CEO Steve Rossum.


“The commencement of direct service to Fort Lauderdale and the South Florida area provides another link to one of the Pensacola Gulf Coast Region’s top ten market areas and important connecting opportunities on the Silver network to Key West and the Bahamas,” said Pensacola Airport Director Dan Flynn.


Silver also recently launched new daily nonstop service between Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) and Daytona Beach International Airport (DAB), and unveiled its first themed aircraft – “Tortuga One” – as the official airline of the Minor League Baseball team Daytona Tortugas. The new service includes convenient connections from Daytona Beach beyond Fort Lauderdale to Key West and many popular Bahamian Family Islands, including Marsh Harbor and Treasure Cay in the Abacos, Eleuthera’s Governor’s Harbour and North Eleuthera, Freeport and George Town in Great Exuma.


Silver Airways also this week presented the Okaloosa County Aviation Board with its proposed plans to start daily nonstop service between Orlando International Airport (MCO) and Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport (VPS) located at Eglin Air Force Base on May 17, 2019.
