FORT MYERS, Fla. - Nonstop service between Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) and Orlando International Airport (MCO) began Tuesday morning.
Silver Airways is operating the daily service, which has not been in the market since November 2012.
The inaugural flight departed RSW just after 9 a.m., with airport fire trucks christening the plane with water from their fire hoses.
According to Southwest Florida International, the new service preceeds another statewide service expected to begin this August -- flights to Ft. Lauderdale.
