ATLANTA — AirTran Airways is looking to add three popular destinations to its lineup – Nassau, Bahamas; Montego Bay, Jamaica; and Aruba.
The airline has filed applications with the U.S. Department of Transportation. If approved, the flights are slated to begin later this year and in early 2010. Service to Nassau and Montego Bay would depart from Atlanta, Baltimore and Orlando; service to Aruba would depart from Atlanta and Orlando, the airline said in a news release.
“Adding our low-cost, high-quality service from some of our largest operations to some of the most popular destinations in the Caribbean is a win-win for consumers and for AirTran Airways,” Kevin Healy, senior vice president, marketing and planning, said in a news release. “There’s nothing quite like jetting off to a tropical island in the middle of Winter, and we look forward to making that possible from some of the largest cities in our network.”
