FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Nov. 5, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In just over a year since it launched its own stand-alone Sabre reservations system, website and independent operations, Silver Airways has transitioned from a company that previously provided regional service as a United Express carrier to a full-service, fully independent airline with a diverse and growing portfolio of partnerships with nine airlines.
As Silver continues to focus on improving the customer travel experience, the airline has now solidified its operations as an independent airline in its Washington-Dulles network, offering multiple daily nonstop flights to and from seven Mid-Atlantic cities, including Clarksburg, WV; DuBois, PA; Johnstown, PA; Lewisburg/Greenbrier, WV; Morgantown, WV; Parkersburg, WV; and Shenandoah Valley/Staunton, VA.
