Fort Lauderdale, Fla. (April 2, 2019) Silver Airways is returning to Bar Harbor, Maine for the peak summer season with daily nonstop service between Hancock County-Bar Harbor Airport (BHB) and Boston’s Logan International Airport (BOS) from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day.


During last year’s summer season, Silver Airways carried out an impressive 100 percent controllable completion factor, as well as arrivals well over 80 percent on the Bar Harbor – Boston route.


Again this year, the flight schedule is designed to conveniently connect to Silver’s numerous codeshare and interline partners in Boston to over 75 destinations across the U.S. and beyond, including 27 of the most important airports via Silver’s codeshare with JetBlue to the northeast corridor, Florida and California.


To celebrate the resumption of the summer service between Bar Harbor and Boston operating May 23 – September 3, 2019, Silver is offering fares from $89* for travel Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, as well as fares from $120 for daily travel available at SilverAirways.com for a limited time and for ticketing before April 15, 2019.


“Mainer and New Englander travelers welcomed Silver Airways with open arms last summer and we are so excited to be kicking off Silver’s Bar Harbor – Boston service even earlier this summer,” said Silver Airways CEO Steve Rossum. “On behalf of the hardworking men and women of Silver Airways, we couldn’t be more thrilled to deliver yet another season of safe, exceptional operational performance for business and leisure travelers flying between Bar Harbor and Boston and beyond.”


“We are very excited to have Silver Airways back in 2019 serving our community and our visitors from all over the world!” said Brad Madeira, Airport Manager County of Hancock, Maine. “We had a phenomenal first season with Silver last year and are expecting that even more people will discover all that Silver has to offer this year, including their safe and reliable service, affordable fares, and the convenience of connecting with Silver’s codeshare and interline partner airlines in Boston, making flying to Downeast Maine the very best way to get to and from here!”


The Bar Harbor-Boston route will be operated with Silver’s fleet of 34-seat Saab 340B Plus aircraft.
