ATA`s Think Thursday Fare Special

Ready to head to the beach one last time before fall? ATA (ATA Airlines, Inc.) (Nasdaq:ATAH) is making it easier with this week`s “Think Thursday Fare Special” from Indianapolis to Cancun from just $99(a) (off-peak, each way based on a round-trip purchase)! Travel is also available from Indianapolis to Ft. Lauderdale (FLL) from $84(a), Newark (EWR) from $95(a) and Washington D.C. (DCA) from $95(a) (all fares off-peak, each way based on a round-trip purchase). These fares are good for travel between September 16, 2003 and October 22, 2003. Tickets for these fares are available for purchase through midnight tonight (C.S.T.) exclusively through the company`s Web site, ATA.Com.
ATA recently extended its Anniversary Travel Awards program through January 31, 2005. The program, originally launched in September 2002, offers loyal customers great travel awards when they fly frequently on ATA or ATA Connection (Chicago Express Airlines, Inc.) and book their travel online at ATA.Com. By purchasing and flying as few as three round-trips, a customer can earn a free domestic companion ticket, an award not offered by any other carrier. Free domestic tickets are earned after only six round-trips, and international tickets to the Caribbean/Mexico and Hawaii are earned after nine and 12 round-trips, respectively. Since no blackout days apply, ATA Travel Awards participants may book earned free tickets any day of the year. While other awards programs may exclude their cheapest fares, ATA believes frequent fliers should have an opportunity to take advantage of both low fares and free trips.

E-ticketed passengers can now take advantage of ATA`s Web Check-In, which allows passengers to print their boarding pass and receipt from their personal computers simply by going to ATA.Com. Customers who don`t have bags to check can skip the check-in process at the airport, a time saver for both business and leisure travelers.
Now celebrating its 30th year of operation, ATA is the nation`s 10th largest passenger carrier based on revenue passenger miles. ATA has the youngest, most fuel-efficient fleet among the major carriers, featuring the new Boeing 737-800 and 757-300 aircraft. The airline operates significant scheduled service from Chicago-Midway and Indianapolis to over 40 business and vacation destinations. Stock of the Company`s parent company, ATA Holdings Corp., is traded on the Nasdaq Stock Market under the symbol “ATAH.”
