AirTran takes value award

AirTran Airways has been named “Best Airline
Value” in the April 2006 issue of Entrepreneur Magazine.This year, the
magazine combined two categories—Best Low-Fare Airline Value and Best Major
Airline Value—and gave the overall award to AirTran Airways.  The
prestigious business publication has recognized AirTran Airways in the Best
Low-Fare Airline Value category a total of five times in previous years.
  Entrepreneur Magazine stated that AirTran Airways has “improved the
business travel experience more for the greatest number of independent
travelers.  Fares are lower and restrictions fewer among nearly all airlines
as a result of the influence of AirTran.”
  “Entrepreneur Magazine has bestowed this prestigious award on us based on
our merits, which include our affordable fares, excellent customer service,
and numerous amenities,” said Joe Leonard, AirTran Airways’ chairman and chief
executive officer.  “As many airlines cut back on services that travelers have
become accustomed to, AirTran Airways continues to offer Business Class on
every flight, XM Satellite Radio and an award-winning Frequent Flyer program.”
  Entrepreneur Magazine created the Business Travel Awards 13 years ago to
help cost-conscious entrepreneurs find the most bang for their business travel
buck.  The companies recognized in this special issue offer the best travel
products and services for entrepreneurs at the most affordable prices.
