BIRMINGHAM, AL (AP) — Plans to offer nonstop commercial flights from Birmingham to New Orleans and Jacksonville, FL, have been put on hold indefinitely.

         The airline is offering refunds to customers who have already booked flights.

         In 2013, Birmingham lost service to both cities when Southwest Airlines dropped the two routes, citing low passenger counts.

         Silver Airways is a regional carrier based in Fort Lauderdale, FL.
