Fort Lauderdale based regional carrier Silver Airways announced Wednesday that they have entered into a new codeshare partnership with Delta Air Lines. In the agreement, Delta’s ‘DL’ code will be available on 150 Silver Airways flights to the Caribbean per week. Silver offers service to San Juan, Anguilla, Antigua, Dominica, Tortola, Nevis, St. Kitts, St. Thomas, St. Croix and St. Maarten. Delta previously had a Caribbean codeshare agreement with Silver’s wholly owned subsidiary, Seaborne Airlines, but those flights are now operated for Silver Airways. The codeshare agreement will also provide Silver’s Caribbean customers seamless access to Delta’s extensive global network. In Wednesday’s announcement, Silver Airways’ CEO, Steve Rossum said,

“We are thrilled to welcome Delta Air Lines to Silver Airways’ codeshare family and are pleased to provide Delta’s customers with Silvers’ safe, reliable and customer-friendly service and expanded reach throughout our extensive Caribbean network.”

Silver Airways operates more intra-Florida and Bahamian routes than any other carrier from its Fort Lauderdale, Orlando and Tampa hubs. The airline also serves Puerto Rico, the Caribbean and the Virgin Islands. Additionally, Silver operates seasonal service between Boston and Bar Harbor, Maine. Silver Airways was the North American Launch customer for the ATR-600 series aircraft and currently operates the type along with Saab 340s. Their Seaborne Airlines subsidiary also operates Twin Otter Seaplanes.

UPDATE: On November 20, 2019 Silver Airways announced that they have also entered a similar codeshare agreement with American Airlines.
