Silver Airways will begin service to three Florida cities out of Columbia Metropolitan Airport on Dec. 17.
The low-cost regional carrier will fly to Tampa, Fort Lauderdale and Orlando with fares starting at $49 one way, according to a news release from CAE. Flights will depart twice a week, on Thursdays and Sundays.
“Silver Airways is a great low-cost carrier and we’re very pleased to welcome them to CAE and the capital city,” Mike Gula, CAE executive director, said in the release. “As we all work to recover from this devastating year, this airline addition supports our focus on moving forward no matter what. We will remain the strong, regional airport that we are, while getting our travelers there and back, safely and with ease.”
Silvery Airways also operates routes to the Bahamas and its Caribbean network connects Puerto Rico with destinations including the U.S. Virgin Islands and the Dominican Republic. The carrier is a codeshare partner with United, JetBlue, American, Delta, Avianca and Copa Airlines, and has interline agreements with Air Canada, Alaska Airlines, All Nippon Airways, Azul, Bahamasair, Emirates and Hahn Air.
“We are delighted to introduce Silver’s safe, reliable, and customer friendly service to Columbia, South Carolina,” Steve Rossum, Silver Airways CEO, said in the release. “Columbia and the surrounding communities comprise a vibrant region bursting with natural beauty, historic significance, countless recreational opportunities, a growing and progressive business community, and one of the most storied public universities in the South. We are very excited.”
