Silver Airways expansion continues
The new darling regional carrier of the southern USA, Silver Airways, has announced further expansion of its route network with new services from Alabama and Mississippi.
These include flights from Greenville, Tupelo, Hattiesburg-Laurel and Meridian, Mississippi, as well as Muscle Shoals, Alabama, to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL).
Since its inception in December 2011, Silver Airways has grown its route network by 60%, adding new destinations to its intra-Florida network, now the largest in the State in terms of the total number of gateways and daily flights, while also opening new hubs in Washington, DC and Atlanta. At the same time, the company has invested heavily in new technology and equipment, modernizing and upgrading its fleet with the addition of 15 Saab 340Bplus aircraft between December 2011 and September 2012. (An additional six Saab 340Bplus aircraft will enter the Silver Airways fleet by January 1, 2013.)
“At Silver Airways, we only know one way to do things, and that’s first class,” said CEO Darrell Richardson. “We’re coming to Mississippi and Alabama on a mission to elevate air travel in the region to new heights. It all starts on the first of October, and we couldn’t be more excited.”
