COVID-19


TRAVEL ADVISORIES: A list of information and online resources by destination is available here.


MANDATORY MASK REQUIREMENT: All Silver and Seaborne customers and employees must wear face coverings over their nose and mouth while within airport facilities, boarding, disembarking, and onboard aircraft. Plastic face shields may be used in addition to a mask but are not approved mask replacements. Any mask with an exhaust valve is not approved as an acceptable face mask.

Customers with unique mask requirements should bring the appropriate face covering that best meets their needs.

Customers with underlying conditions that explicitly prevent the wearing of a face covering or mask are strongly encouraged to reconsider travel or should be prepared to provide documentation and evidence of safe travel prior to departure at the airport. If you require this exemption, please arrive early to complete the process during check-in and avoid missing your flight – this process can take over one hour. Please arrive early to allow additional time. Mask exemptions only apply for travel on flights operated by Silver Airways and Seaborne Airlines and do not exempt customers from any requirements that may be imposed by governments, including local, state or foreign countries, (at the origin or destination) or from requirements on other airlines.

Any false claims of a disability or health condition to obtain an exemption from wearing a mask or face covering may result in the suspension of travel privileges on any Silver/Seaborne operated flight for the duration of the mask/face covering requirement.

The latest CDC Order is available at www.cdc.gov/media/releases/2021/p0130-requires-face-masks.html


TSA has extended their face mask requirement for individuals across all transportation networks throughout the United States, including at airports, onboard commercial aircraft, on over-the-road buses, and on commuter bus and rail systems through September 13. The latest TSA update is available here.

These requirements are part of the airline’s ongoing commitment to prioritizing customer and team member well-being in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Always remember to avoid travel if you are showing symptoms of respiratory illness or traveling from a restricted area.

Please see the following helpful links from the CDC regarding face covering recommendations and how to make your own:

Starting January 1, 2021, we are permanently waiving change and cancellation fees to customers who buy Silver’s Freedom Fares for travel within the U.S, or between the U.S and Bahamas or within the Caribbean (travel within the U.S includes Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands). In addition the Freedom fare perks include free ticket exchanges, free seat assignments and last minute reschedule. Your unused ticket can be applied to buy a new flight. If the fare and taxes of the new flight are higher, the difference will be collected. If the fare and taxes of the new flight are lower, the difference will move to Travel Bank for future use. Tickets must be changed or cancelled prior to departure of your original flight to avoid being a “No-Show” and lose the value of the ticket. Freedom Fares are non-refundable

Customers who buy Silver’s Escape Fares may change their reservation at any time after paying a change fee plus the fare difference (if applicable). Change fees for Escape Fares are currently set at $50 for domestic itineraries and $100 for international itineraries. In addition, extras like seat upgrades, ticket exchanges, last minute reschedule are available for purchase. Tickets must be changed or cancelled prior to departure of your original flight to avoid being a “No-Show” and lose the value of the ticket. Escape Fares are non-refundable.

Customers who buy Silver's Refundable Fares for domestic or international travel may change their reservation at any time with no fees or penalties, as long as it is done prior to the scheduled departure time of the original flight.

Tickets are valid for one year from the date of purchase and final travel must be completed by the end of the ticket validity. For all tickets purchased at least 7 days before a flight’s scheduled departure date and time, you can cancel without penalty and receive a full refund as long as it is done within 24 hours of hours after the reservation is made. For everything else, the fare rules associated to the purchased ticket will apply.

Please remember that if you purchased your ticket through a third party (travel agency or another airline), you have to contact them directly for assistance with changes and cancellations.
