Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward joined representatives from Silver Airways and Visit Pensacola on Thursday at Pensacola International Airport as Silver launched new service between Pensacola and Jacksonville International Airport with connecting service to Fort Lauderdale.
"Pensacola is excited to grow our relationship with Silver Airways and to serve more destinations than any other airport in the region," Mayor Ashton Hayward said. "This new service connects Pensacola with two new destinations in Florida, and dozens of others through Silver's codeshare agreements. Travelers can now book flights to Pensacola through airlines such as JetBlue."
Silver Airways' non-stop flights between Jacksonville and Pensacola will operate Monday through Friday. With the addition of the Jacksonville service, Pensacola International Airport now offers non-stop service to 12 international hubs.
"As the airline of choice for Florida and the Bahamas, we are thrilled to be providing this important link between Jacksonville and Pensacola, and offering travelers the convenience and time savings of flying over driving," said Jamie Kogutek, Silver Airways vice president of network and schedule planning.
In addition to the direct connections to Jacksonville and Fort Lauderdale, Silver Airways offers customers the ease and convenience of seamless booking, ticketing and baggage handling with connections to dozens of destinations outside of Florida that are available via the airline's codeshare agreements and interline ticketing partnerships. Members of United's MileagePlus and JetBlue's TrueBlue customer loyalty programs can also earn frequent flyer awards for travel throughout Silver's Florida network.
To celebrate the new service, Silver is offering introductory fares from $49 (one way, including taxes and fees, terms and conditions apply) between Jacksonville and Pensacola through 10:59 pm April 14, for travel between April 16 and June 26.
