Silver Airways Expands to Midwest with Nonstop Routes from Branson, Missouri

Florida based Silver Airways is expanding its route network beyond the Southeast and Bahamas and into Midwest market. Using Branson, Missouri (BKG) as a focus airport Silver will offer nonstop flights from New Orleans (MSY), Houston (IAH), and Chicago O'Hare (ORD) to the Ozarks.

To go along with this announcement, Silver Airways is offering introductory fares starting at $99 one-way on these new routes. These routes will be served by Silver's brand new fleet of ATR-600 propeller aircraft, the first airline in North America to feature these eco-friendly planes. Flight days vary per route and will begin service on August 30 through December 19, 2018. By booking directly on the Silver Airways website I was able to receive a discount reducing the fares to $192 round-trip, booking with third-party sites will cost a few dollars more.

In addition to these Midwest routes, Silver Airways will also begin daily service from Orlando (MCO) to Huntsville (HSV) on May 23, 2018. All tickets include one personal item and one carry-on bag. Checked baggage will cost additional.

To get these introductory sale prices, tickets must be purchased before midnight April 30, 2018.
