In honor of Glavine, AirTran offers $47 flights

ATLANTA — AirTran Airways today launched a special one-day, $47 sale to more than 47 destinations in honor of retired Atlanta Braves and New York Mets pitching great Tom Glavine.

Glavine’s number, 47, will be retired in Atlanta tonight during a special ceremony.

“Having my number retired is one of the greatest highlights of my career,” Glavine said in a news release. “Being able to share this moment with all my fans with this sale from AirTran makes this moment all the more special.”

The sale focuses on Atlanta, where the hurler began and ended his career. There are also special Boston-based fares, Glavine’s hometown.

These special fares are available for one-day purchase through Aug. 6, and are good for travel on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays through Oct. 7.
