International Air Service Coming to Jacksonville Silver Airways Begins Flights from Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) to the Bahamas June 15

Silver Airways will begin weekly scheduled service from JAX Airport to Marsh Harbour (MHH) in the Bahamas, beginning Saturday, June 15, 2013.  

The once-a-week service will depart Jacksonville on Saturdays at 10:31 a.m., arriving in Marsh Harbour at 12:16 p.m. The return flight departs Marsh Harbour on Saturdays at 12:46, arriving in Jacksonville at 2:54 p.m. 

Dave Pflieger, President and CEO of Silver Airways, commented on the new service saying: "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."
“We are optimistic that Silver’s success with this route will lead to additional nonstop service with the carrier,” Steve Grossman, Jacksonville Aviation Authority (JAA) Executive Director/CEO said. “For Jacksonville residents, this means another JAX nonstop opportunity to visit a beautiful island getaway.”

Silver Airways has operated in Jacksonville since August 2012, under a code-share agreement with United Airlines. The airline currently offers nonstop service to Tampa with a 34-seat Saab 340Bplus aircraft. On June 8, Silver will begin operating under its own reservation system as an independent airline.

“Travelers will notice Silver’s increased presence throughout the terminal,” Grossman said. “A ticket counter, gate space and additional aircraft at the terminal will make Silver’s unique branding difficult to miss.”
