To celebrate the new nonstop Huntsville – Orlando service, for a limited
time Silver is offering fares from only $99* available at
In addition, Silver offers convenient one-stop connections from
Huntsville to Fort Lauderdale and Key West and one-stop connections from
Huntsville to Marsh Harbour and Freeport in the Bahamas.

"We are very excited to start this highly-requested nonstop service for
business and leisure travelers from Alabama and the Tennessee Valley
travelling to the attractions, beaches and businesses of Central
Florida, including NASA and Florida's Space Coast," said Alabama native
and Silver Airways Vice President David LeNoir. "We are delighted with
the support and outstanding reception from the folks in the Tennessee
Valley for our safe, affordable, and friendly air service."

"Today we launch Silver Airways as a new carrier for not only Huntsville
International Airport, but also in the state of Alabama," stated Betty
Fletcher, Chairman, Board of Directors, Huntsville International
Airport. "The addition of Orlando and Central Florida to the list of
nonstop destinations for our market has been received with great
excitement since this was previously one of the most requested new
destinations by our passengers. We are pleased to have Silver Airways
fulfilling that request and flying HSV."

"Attracting and sustaining new air service is a community-wide matter
that affects each and every one of us – both the leisure traveler and
the business traveler," said Rick Tucker, Executive Director, Huntsville
International Airport. "Launching this service from Huntsville to
Orlando is an excellent step to providing all of the citizens of the
Tennessee Valley more air travel options and savings. Support from the
business community and our residents is integral to attracting and
sustaining service like this in Huntsville and so we encourage everyone
to fly HSV and Silver Airways so that we can continue to provide more
air travel options to more destinations and with lower fares."

"Huntsville, Alabama and Central Florida have a lot in common, from deep
roots in the space program to new air service from Silver," says Phil
Brown, Chief Executive Officer of the Greater Orlando Aviation
Authority. "This latest air service addition from Silver Airways cements
those ties and opens new opportunities for business and leisure travel."

To initiate the new service, Huntsville International Airport hosted a
ceremony this morning to formally welcome Silver Airways into the
community with a ribbon cutting with Silver officials, including CEO
Steve Rossum and Senior Vice President Kurt Brulisauer. To commemorate
the maiden flight, Silver's flight crew included all Alabamians led by
Captain Joshua Walters, assisted by First Officer Jeffrey Rogers and
Flight Attendant Rachel Peacock.

The new Huntsville – Orlando route will be operated initially with
Silver's fleet of Saab 340 aircraft. Later this year, Silver looks
forward to introducing its brand new fleet of ATR-600 aircraft on the
route. Silver is proud to be the North American launch customer for the
all new, state-of-the-art ATR-600. The new ATR-600 provides a refined
guest experience with rich leather seating, more leg room, and spacious
overhead bins that accommodate full-size, carry-on roller bags. Today's
ATRs embody the most advanced aircraft technology available with the
latest avionics and all-glass cockpit that ensures safe, reliable
flights that are quieter and more comfortable for passengers.
