The return flight will depart Marsh Harbour on Saturdays at 12:46, arriving in Jacksonville at 2:54 p.m.

"As Florida's hometown airline and the largest U.S. carrier to The Bahamas, we're pleased to create a direct link to the incredible vacation product in Marsh Harbour for the traveling public in Jacksonville and its surrounding communities," said President and CEO Dave Pflieger in a press release.

Silver Airways has operated in Jacksonville since August 2012, under a code-share agreement with United Airlines.

On June 8 Silver will begin operating under its own reservation system as an independent airline.
