As we just remembered Memorial Day, Silver Airways is saying Bravo Zulu! to the dedicated men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces who have selflessly given of themselves to protect us all and those who continue to serve our country with the unveiling a newly-painted military-themed aircraft.
The Saab 340 was officially named “Bravo Zulu,” a long tradition and widely-used phrase throughout the military for a job well done. The messages “Saluting Service Members” and “All Gave Some – Some Gave All” is also inscribed on the plane.
“We are proud to unveil ‘Bravo Zulu’ as our tribute of appreciation to veteran and active-duty members of the U.S. military in salute of their tireless dedication and sacrifices in serving our country,” said Silver Airways CEO Steve Rossum.
Silver Airways serves a large number of military communities throughout its Florida network and beyond.
This week, “Bravo Zulu” is scheduled to take its maiden flight between two historic U.S. Air Force bases – Orlando International Airport, formerly McCoy Air Force Base, and Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport, located within Eglin Air Force Base. The first flight from Orlando to Destin is on May 16, 2019, and the first flight from Destin to Orlando is on May 17, 2019. In addition to connecting Northwest Florida to Central Florida, this new service also provides convenient connections to Silver’s extensive network throughout the Sunshine State, the Bahamas and beyond.
The airline also offers a discount for active-duty military (and their spouse and children) traveling for leisure on all Silver Airways flights, including members of the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, National Guard and reserve personnel on active duty status.
