Airline offers 60% discount to see Donald Trump in Tampa

Jeb Bush, Donald Trump

Want to see what Donald Trump will say when he speaks at the University of South Florida Sun Dome on Friday?

Don’t worry, Silver Airways has a promotion for that.

The airline is offering 60 percent off one-way flights to Tampa on Thursday and Friday. The promotion is also good for one-way flights from Tampa on Saturday.

“This Friday night, Trump will be at the USF Sun Dome for a major campaign event,” the airline said in its promotion. “Last Saturday in New Hampshire’s debate, Trump shushed (Jeb) Bush live on television. What will Trump do next? Find out for yourself. Let Silver fly you to the event!”

The airline said it is offering 60 percent off flights to Tampa, since “Bush came in 6th in Iowa.”

“Come see the Trump Train in person this Friday, but hurry … this promo code is only valid for bookings through Wednesday night,” according to the airline.

Silver Airways previously offered free flights in Florida if either Bush or Marco Rubio won the Iowa caucuses.

Like that promotion, this one comes with plenty of terms and conditions. Travel must be on or after Feb. 11 and on or before Feb. 13. Tickets must be purchased by 11:59 p.m. Wednesday.
