The company announced Thursday it is offering promotional fares of up to 50 percent off to help entice travelers to fly the new route.

Silver will offer flights five days a week — Thursdays through Mondays.

“Silver Airways’ Freedom Fares to Key West are about giving people the freedom to finally be able to fly instead of drive,” said Jason Bewley, Silver Airways CFO and Executive Vice President.  “Driving to Key West might seem like an experience, but a stroll down Duval Street is always better than the slow crawl down A1A.  When you fly Silver direct from West Palm to Key West, you’ll arrive in a fraction of the time.”

Silver operates a fleet of  34-seat Saab 340B Plus turboprop aircraft.
