Diverse and growing portfolio of partnerships provide travelers
convenient connections to even more destinations throughout Florida and
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Silver Airways, which offers more service between Florida cities than
any other airline and more flights between Florida and the Bahamas than
any other U.S. airline, continues to develop and expand its interline
and codeshare ticketing capabilities and partnerships. These new
ticketing partnerships allow partner airlines to bring even more
destinations within reach of customers, allowing travelers to easily
connect between different airline networks. By booking single-ticket
trips and combining flights on multiple carriers, customers can also
enjoy one-stop check-in and baggage check when they transfer between the
airlines at any of Silver’s gateways.
In less than a year since it launched its own website and stand-alone
Sabre reservations system, Silver has expanded its diverse and growing
portfolio of partnerships to include interline agreements with American
Airlines, Bahamasair, Delta Air Lines, JetBlue, and US Airways, as well
as international interline ticketing capabilities with overseas airline
partner Hahn Air. These new partnerships are in addition to Silver’s
longstanding codeshare and frequent flyer partnership with the world’s
largest airline, United Airlines.
In addition, as part of its continued interline and codeshare
development efforts, Silver this week introduced Sabre Revenue Manager,
rounding out its suite of Sabre Revenue Management products that also
include Sabre Fares Manager. These capabilities, along with the Sabre
Passenger Service System, participation in all major GDS systems, and
membership in the IATA clearinghouse, allow Silver to provide current
and future airline partners with easy access to the high demand Florida
and Bahamas region.
“As a next generation regional airline, we are proud to connect
travelers from our partner airlines with state-of-the-art industry
systems,” said Silver Airways Chief Commercial Officer Travis Christ.
In 2013, Silver connected thousands of interline passengers on more than
450 weekly flights to 10 destinations throughout its extensive Florida
network. In addition, with over 225 weekly flights between Florida and
the Bahamas each week, more than any other airline, Silver carried
thousands of interline travelers from its gateways at Fort Lauderdale,
Orlando, West Palm Beach, and Jacksonville to seven Bahamian island
destinations, including Bimini, Grand Bahama (Freeport), the Abacos
(Marsh Harbor and Treasure Cay), the Elutheras (Northern Eluthera and
Governor’s Harbor), and Exuma (Georgetown).
