Silver Airways is a regional airline headquartered in Fort Lauderdale, FL. It flies to the Caribbean and to a handful of cities in the southeast. I’ve flown them to San Juan, Great Exuma, and St. Kitts. Flights are quick and the service is generally good. I live in Tampa, FL during the winter and Silver Airways currently has eight routes served from there in the Southeast (plus Nassau and Marsh Harbour in The Bahamas).

Silver Airways PLS

Today, the airline announced new service between Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) and Providenciales International Airport (PLS) in Turks & Caicos. The flight will operate 2x weekly on Mondays (some weeks this switches to Tuesdays) and Fridays on an ATR 42-600 aircraft.

Grace Bay Beach is one of the prettiest in the Caribbean and these new flights put it just a short hop from Fort Lauderdale.

Anthony’s Take: Silver Airways has lots of attractive options to get to the Caribbean this winter, including eight destinations from my winter home airport: Tampa International Airport (TPA).

This is a good route addition for Silver. JetBlue pulled out of the FLL-PLS market a while back, leaving only Southwest on the route until now. Southwest is moving this flight over to its MCO hub come early summer, leaving Silver as the lone airline running the route from FLL at that point (unless someone else jumps in).

AA runs multiple dailies from MIA, but would prefer to fill those flights with higher fare connecting traffic vs point to point.

Fares from south Florida to PLS are going to jump come summer after Southwest pulls out. 42 seats a couple times a week isn’t much of a dent in demand, leaving AA free to jack up fares from MIA. If I lived in SoFla and was planning to heat to PLS I’d be aiming to do it before this Summer.
