Silver Airways: AG Slide Show

The company issued this statement:

As part of its plan to strengthen operations, simplify its fleet, increase revenue, reduce costs, and better position the airline for future growth and new markets, Silver Airways has announced plans to exit operations in its Cleveland network and retrain or redeploy its pilots, mechanics, and airport team members to operate its core SAAB 340B Plus fleet to its key markets.
Silver provided the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) with the required 90-day notice of its intent to discontinue scheduled service between Cleveland and five communities no later than May 15, 2014, including Jamestown, New York (JHW); Bradford, Pennsylvania (BFD); DuBois, Pennsylvania (DUJ); Franklin, Pennsylvania (FKL); and Parkersburg, West Virginia (PKB).
