AirTran Airways Hits the Jackpot with New Service in Atlantic City, N.J.

/PRNewswire / -- AirTran Airways, a subsidiary of AirTran Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:AAI) , today announced plans to begin service in Atlantic City, N.J., effective June 11, 2009. The expanding low-fare carrier will offer roundtrip nonstop flights between Atlantic City International Airport and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

"In 2009, AirTran Airways is continuing to expand into new or underserved routes that our customers have expressed interest in," said Bob Fornaro, chairman, president and CEO for AirTran Airways. "Atlantic City now becomes the 59th destination for AirTran Airways. The reach and convenience of our Atlanta hub will make it easier for residents from the Jersey shore to connect with many other business and leisure destinations. Passengers will enjoy traveling on America's newest all-Boeing fleet and experiencing our award-winning service."

"We could not be more pleased that AirTran will be providing air service out of the Atlantic City International Airport," said New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine. "The dynamic environment in Atlantic City and ongoing economic opportunity development throughout South Jersey has created the opportunity for AirTran to serve a market that has been eager for more convenient access to national air service. This new addition is a real boost for commerce and tourism in the Garden State."
