I was hesitant to book and fly an airline that was new to our city and I had not even heard of before, but the price was right for a quick 3 day trip to Orlando. The craft was very small, as expected, however I was not disappointed in that I was prepared for this. Everything went smooth and quick;...

Small plane which was a little intimidating and having to walk out onto the airplane tarmac to enter the plane was a new adventure but the flight itself was very calm and take off and landing was great.

PLEASE do yourself a favor and avoid this airline at all costs! Junk planes, rude staff, no communication just to name a few. Flew 2 round trip flights and was delayed on both ends both times. I would take layovers over every time over flying Silver ever again!

I read a lot of bad reviews so I went in expecting the worst. The flight was smooth for such a small aircraft and the staff was very pleasant. However the plane was very dirty and could use some updates.

Nice relaxing travel starting with check-in, easy short security line and smooth flight back to the states. Plane was a little late due to weather but that did not impact any travel connections.

Not a bad airline for a small operation - reasonably efficient with friendly staff. The flights were slightly delayed but I think that was just a consequence of the season.

Read a lot of bad things about Silver but took anyway because easy way to get to Pensacola. Was quite surprised, everyone in Tampa from check-in, to Gate Agent, to Tarmac, to Flight Attendant all thanked me for flying Silver Airways. Planes are loud so take Noise canceling headphones. Took it back to Tampa the next day, saves 3-4 hours...
