AirTran Airways Brings Low Fares to the Caribbean With New Service to Aruba

/PRNewswire/ -- AirTran Airways, a subsidiary of AirTran Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:AAI) , today launched new service between Atlanta and Aruba, offering one nonstop flight each week. On January 9, 2010, the airline will also introduce weekly nonstop flights between Orlando and Aruba.

Service to the popular vacation destination will join existing flights to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Cancun, Mexico, and most recently, Nassau, Bahamas, and Key West, Fla. In February, the low cost airline will continue its Caribbean expansion with flights to Montego Bay, Jamaica.

"Bringing our low fares and high-quality service to the Caribbean is a priority for AirTran Airways. Offering new service to Aruba is one more step in that direction," said Tad Hutcheson, vice president of marketing and sales for AirTran Airways. "Travelers in Atlanta and Orlando will benefit from the nonstop service, and customers from all over the country can make just one stop to get to their vacation in paradise."

"Speaking for everyone in Aruba's tourism industry, we are delighted to welcome AirTran Airways as our newest airline partner. By increasing the opportunity for more Americans to discover our island's unique pleasures and year-round perfect weather, this new direct service from Atlanta will benefit not only our visitors but the people of Aruba, for whom tourism is so important," said Otmar Oduber, Aruba's Minister of Tourism, Transportation and Labor. "The special character of a vacation in Aruba has helped us maintain a repeat visitor rate of over 60 percent - the highest in the Caribbean - and we are pleased that partners like AirTran Airways are helping us make those enriching experiences accessible from more gateway cities across North America."
