AirTran adds Milwaukee New York service

AirTran Airways is to add services between General Mitchell International Airport in
Milwaukee and New York LaGuardia Airport.The route will be served with the airline’s popular and fuel-efficient
Boeing 737-700 and Boeing 717-200 aircraft, which make up America’s
youngest all Boeing fleet.

  “Passenger demand for AirTran Airways’ product has been strong in
Milwaukee, and we are excited to offer our Milwaukee customers new nonstop
service to New York City,” said Kevin Healy, senior vice president of
marketing and planning for AirTran Airways. “With well-timed flights and
low- fares, passengers can sit back, listen to XM Satellite Radio and enjoy
their flight to the city that never sleeps. AirTran Airways’ service
expansion from Milwaukee to Las Vegas and Phoenix has been extremely well
received. We think the addition of New York will be a strong market for
both business and leisure travelers and a key part of our growing network
from Mitchell Field.”

  AirTran Airways currently offers nonstop service form Milwaukee to
Atlanta, Baltimore-Washington, Ft. Myers, Las Vegas, Orlando, Phoenix and
Tampa. Today’s announcement is the first of several exciting new service
initiatives for AirTran from Milwaukee in 2008.
