Silver continues to grow at TPA
As each month passes, Tampa International Airport’s passenger numbers have continued to trend upward at a faster pace than the U.S. as a whole, and airlines are noticing the momentum. In the last six months, Silver Airways has launched five new routes from Tampa to Columbia (CAE), Greenville-Spartanburg (GSP) and Charleston (CHS), S.C., along with Jacksonville, Fla. (JAX) and Savannah (SAV).
"TPA has been an important destination to Silver and we continue to invest by adding more flights and more destinations," said Pedro Motta, Senior Vice President of Commercial and Finance at Silver.
By May 2021, Silver will be fully transitioned from their 34-seat Saab-340 fleet to their new ATR-42s, configured with 47 seats. This change is expected to increase Silver’s market share at TPA, which is currently around 1 percent of all traffic. Other markets served by Silver from TPA include Key West, Tallahassee, Fort Lauderdale, Pensacola and Nassau, Bahamas.
