Silver Airways to start daily nonstop service between Orlando International Airport and Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport

The boutique airline of Florida, Silver Airways has confirmed it wants to start a new direct daily nonstop service between Orlando International Airport (MCO) and Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport (VPS) located at Eglin Air Force Base. The carrier wants to start the flights on May 17th, 2019.

In addition to the nonstop service connecting Northwest Florida and the Panhandle to Central Florida, the new route also provides convenient connections to Silver’s network throughout Florida and the Bahamas, as well as a variety of destinations throughout the U.S. through Silver’s codeshare and interline ticketing partners, including United, American and Delta who currently operate at Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport.


“We are so excited to serve the many men and women serving our country who work and live in the Destin-Fort Walton Beach area,” said Silver Airways Senior Vice President Kurt Brulisauer. “We’re also very much looking forward to providing an additional high-demand route for business, leisure and military travellers between Northwest and Central Florida, which isn’t available with any other airline.”

Silver provides more routes within Florida and between Florida and the Bahamas than any other airline and continues to expand its already extensive Florida/Bahamas network. The airline recently started daily nonstop service between Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) and Daytona Beach International Airport (DAB), and this week is starting daily nonstop service between Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) and Pensacola International Airport (PNS), as well as twice-weekly service between Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) and New Bight Airport Cat Island, Bahamas (TBI).
