“As the Southeastern United States safely re-opens, Silver welcomes back military, leisure, and business travelers with Silver’s low fares and reliable service between Charleston- an iconic American coastal city steeped in beauty, culture, military tradition and rich history- and Florida’s three most important travel markets,” said Steve Rossum, Silver’s Chief Executive Officer. “Charleston and the surrounding Lowcountry communities are leaders in business development, serve as the home to vital military bases, and provide countless vacation opportunities. We are very excited,” added Rossum.
“Establishing these new and expanded routes is a win-win for Floridians and Charleston area residents alike,” said Elliott Summey, Chief Executive Officer of Charleston County Aviation Authority. “Silver is a strong regional airline with an extensive network. Their new service will not only expand our options to Ft. Lauderdale, they are opening the door to new markets in Tampa, Orlando and beyond.”
“The Silver Airways announcement to link the Charleston area to three distinct regions in Florida is great news for our area’s steady progress toward recovery,” said Helen Hill, Chief Executive Officer of Explore Charleston and Chairman of the Aviation Authority Board. “Florida has long been an important market for our hospitality industry, and we know it’s favorite among locals for a quick escape as the seasons change.”
“We are excited to welcome Silver Airways and its Tampa, Orlando, and Ft. Lauderdale passengers to the Lowcountry. This outstanding news for our industry and community continues an impressive run of significant air service announcements in recent weeks. As we navigate our pandemic recovery, we are encouraged by these votes of confidence in the strength, potential, and desirability of the Charleston market,” said Michael Tall, Chairman of Explore Charleston’s Board of Governors.
