The Greenbrier, the classic resort in White Sulphur Springs, WV, reports the launch of Silver Airways nonstop service from Washington, DC's Dulles and Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson airports on August 1, 2012.
The new flights from Washington, DC and Atlanta will arrive seven days a week in peak season (from May 1 through October 31) and six days a week in off-peak season (November 1 through April 30) at Greenbrier Valley Airport in Lewisburg, WV.
Silver Airways, which currently offers roundtrip weekend service only from Cleveland to Lewisburg, is seeking a codeshare agreement with United Airlines, the Greenbriar says. This will provide seamless connections from Lewisburg through the United hub at Washington Dulles.
The new flight service into Lewisburg is in addition to the existing daily service on United from Washington Dulles to Beckley Raleigh County Memorial Airport in Beckley, WV ( 55 minutes from The Greenbrier by car) and from various major markets to Roanoke Regional Airport in Virginia (a 1.5-hour drive from The Greenbrier through Jefferson National Forest).
United, US Airways and Delta operate daily nonstop service to Roanoke from New York LaGuardia, Chicago O'Hare, Washington Dulles, Philadelphia, Detroit, Atlanta and Charlotte.
