WEST BAY, Fla. (AP) - Silver Airways will begin offering daily flights from Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport to Tampa and Orlando.

The airlines announced Monday that it will offer twice-daily flights to Orlando International Airport and once-a-day flights to Tampa International Airport on March 19.

Airport Authority Chairman Till Bruett told the News Herald of Panama City (https://bit.ly/1BdGvWA ) that intrastate flights have been at the top of the airports wish list since Southwest Airlines dropped its daily flight to Orlando two years ago.

Flights on United Airlines to George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston will also begin in March.

The airport is located in West Bay, just north of Panama City Beach.
