Silver Airways Outlines Plans to Start Daily Nonstop Service Between Orlando International Airport and Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport Starting May 17, 2019

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Silver
Airways
today 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.

Silver plans to announce its daily flight schedule and proposed fares on
February 19, 2019, when the airline anticipates receiving final Okaloosa
County Commission Board approval for Silver’s new service. In addition,
Silver will introduce new discounted fares for active-duty military on
all flights.

In addition to the nonstop service connecting Northwest Florida and the
Panhandle to Central Florida, the new route also provides convenient
connections to Silver’s network throughout Florida and the Bahamas, as
well as a variety of destinations throughout the U.S. through Silver’s
codeshare and interline ticketing partners, including United, American
and Delta who currently operate at Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport.

“We are so excited to serve the many men and women serving our country
who work and live in the Destin-Fort Walton Beach area,” said Silver
Airways Senior Vice President Kurt Brulisauer. “We’re also very much
looking forward to providing an additional high-demand route for
business, leisure and military travelers between Northwest and Central
Florida, which isn’t available with any other airline.”

Silver provides more routes within Florida and between Florida and the
Bahamas than any other airline, and continues to expand its already
extensive Florida/Bahamas network. The airline recently started daily
nonstop service between Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport
(FLL) and Daytona Beach International Airport (DAB), and this week is
starting daily nonstop service between Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood
International Airport (FLL) and Pensacola International Airport (PNS),
as well as twice weekly service between Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood
International Airport (FLL) and New Bight Airport Cat Island, Bahamas
(TBI).
