TUPELO, Miss. (AP) — Silver Airways will offer one-way tickets between Tupelo and Atlanta for $48, plus tax, beginning by the end of the month.

Such tickets currently cost between $55 and $166, depending on the day of departure.

The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal (http://bit.ly/1cifiXR) reports the fare reduction comes on the heels of Silver's decision to reduce the number of weekly flights from 36 to 24, starting March 3.

Tupelo officials had asked the Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based airline to reduce the number of flights in hopes of improving Silver's performance, which has been fraught with cancellations and delays.

Silver also announced Friday it was ending service between Cleveland, Ohio, and five smaller cities - Jamestown, N.Y.; Bradford, DuBois and Franklin, Pa.; and Parkersburg, W.Va., on May 15.
