Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport (GSP) welcomed its sixth airline on March 18, 2021, when Silver Airways began nonstop service to Orlando (MCO), FL.
On March 19, 2021, the airline began service to Jacksonville (JAX), FL, and on March 21, 2021 the airline began service to Tampa (TPA), FL.
“We are delighted to connect the vibrant and growing Upstate region of South Carolina with the relaxing beaches, world-class golf courses, and exciting nightlife of our Florida cities,” said Steve Rossum, CEO for Silver Airways.
Silver Airways will provide the only nonstop service to Orlando International Airport and Tampa International and will be the first airline to offer nonstop service to Jacksonville International Airport from GSP.
