Silver Airways logoFORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Silver Airways announced that it is starting new twice weekly service between Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) and New Bight Airport Cat Island, Bahamas (TBI) beginning February 13, 2019.

To celebrate the new service, Silver is offering introductory fares from $98* available at silverairways.com for a limited time for travel between February 13, 2019 and May 22, 2019, for ticketing before December 17, 2018.

“We are thrilled to be adding Cat Island to Silver’s already extensive network of Bahamian Family Islands, which includes more routes between Florida and the Bahamas than any other airline,” said Silver Airways CEO Steve Rossum.

“Congratulations to Silver Airways for their continued growth at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport,” said Mark Gale, CEO/Director of Aviation. “Cat Island in the southern Bahamas is an unspoiled gem which offers travelers a new destination currently unserved by our commercial airlines.”

Cat Island’s untouched beaches are ideal for the classic get-away-from-it-all escape. Divers, snorkelers, sailors and fishing enthusiasts relish in the waters of this tranquil, 50-mile long island. The highest point in the Islands of The Bahamas is located here at Mt. Alvernia – a whopping 206 feet – and the east coast of Cat Island is known for its eight-mile pink sand beach, Fire Beach.
