“We are looking forward to continuing our commitment to serving travelers by growing our core markets in Florida and the Bahamas,” said Silver Airways President and CEO Sami Teittinen.  “We are also excited about Silver’s future continued expansion as we anticipate the U.S. and Cuba governments signing the bilateral agreement, which will open additional opportunities for scheduled service in the Caribbean and Cuba.”

“We are pleased to welcome Silver Airways to LPIA this Spring and look forward to providing visitors travelling from Fort Meyers, Tampa and West Palm Beach, Florida with an extraordinary first and last impression of Nassau,” said President and CEO of Nassau Airport Development Company Ltd. Vernice Walkine.  “In addition to expanding direct airlift for visitors, the new routes offered by Silver will allow Bahamians direct access to Tampa and West Palm Beach, two areas in Florida where Bahamians vacation and shop, along with the opportunity to explore Fort Myers.  Silver Airways has a proven commitment to The Bahamas with direct flights to five Family Islands.  We are pleased that they are again expanding with the addition of Nassau to their schedule.”

“Nassau has long been a favorite spot for honeymooners, divers and boaters and we’re excited to offer this service to TPA’s growing list of nonstop international flights,” Tampa International Airport Vice President of Marketing Chris Minner said. “Silver has been a great partner in offering easy connectivity to leisure destinations and we’re looking forward to expanding that partnership as our travelers’ demand for these destinations grows.”

“Silver Airways is an integral part of travel from PBI to the Bahamas.  We are very excited to offer our travelers the opportunity to fly Silver Airways nonstop to Nassau, Bahamas from PBI,” said Bruce Pelly, Director of Airports for Palm Beach County.

“I am extremely pleased that Silver Airways is inaugurating nonstop service to Nassau, Bahamas in May 2016 from Southwest Florida International Airport,” said Robert M. Ball, A.A.E, executive director of the Lee County Port Authority.  “One of our key air service development initiatives has been to attract service to the Bahamas and these new flights will directly link our region to this popular travel destination for the very first time.”
