Air Tran Plans Caribbean Flights

AirTran applies for Caribbean routes

Aug 25, 2009

AirTran Airways said Tuesday it submitted applications with the U.S. Department of Transportation to begin flying to Nassau, Bahamas; Montego Bay, Jamaica; and Aruba.

Pending approval, the airline plans to start service to the three destinations later this year and early in 2010 from several cities.

Orlando, Fla.-based AirTran wants service to Nassau and Montego Bay from Atlanta, Baltimore and Orlando. Service to Aruba would come from Atlanta and Orlando.

AirTranā€™s biggest hub is Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

"Adding our low-cost, high-quality service from some of our largest operations to some of the most popular destinations in the Caribbean is a win-win for consumers and for AirTran Airways," said Kevin Healy, senior vice president, marketing and planning, in a statement. "There's nothing quite like jetting off to a tropical island in the middle of winter, and we look forward to making that possible from some of the largest cities in our network."
