ORLANDO, Fla. – AirTran Airways, a subsidiary of AirTran Holdings, Inc., today announced the continued expansion of its burgeoning Caribbean flight schedule while unveiling its seasonal travel schedule.

The Caribbean expansion includes daily service to Aruba and Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, from the low-cost carrier’s hub in Atlanta as well as new, non-stop flights from Milwaukee to Cancun, Mexico.

Seasonal service will begin to several of the airline’s most popular spring and summer destinations in the coming weeks, including new, non-stop flights from Baltimore/Washington to San Francisco.

“Expanding our flights to these popular Caribbean destinations makes reaching your favorite tropical island easier than ever,” said Tad Hutcheson, AirTran Airways’ vice president of marketing and sales. “If the islands aren’t your thing, AirTran Airways can take you from the Pacific Northwest to Key West and just about everywhere in between.”

Increased Service in Atlanta

AirTran Airways will connect dozens of cities to some of the world’s most popular Caribbean islands with daily service from its Atlanta hub this spring.
