AirTran Airways Heats Up Its Schedule in White Plains With New Service to Florida
AirTran Airways, a subsidiary of AirTran Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: AAI), today announced the airline will expand its route map from New York's Westchester County Airport by adding new daily nonstop flights to three popular Florida destinations -- Ft. Lauderdale, Ft. Myers and Tampa -- just in time for a warm-weather getaway this winter. The new daily nonstop flights begin Dec. 21 and will be served by the airline's popular Boeing 717 aircraft.
"As the leading carrier from White Plains to Florida, we are thrilled to add three more destinations to our service portfolio" said John Kirby, AirTran Airways' Director of strategic planning and scheduling. "With nonstop service to five popular Florida destinations, including the flights we are announcing today and our existing schedule to West Palm Beach and Orlando, AirTran Airways gives Westchester County residents an affordable reason to use their hometown airport for a winter getaway."
Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) stated: "Westchester Airport is the one of the gateways to New York and the Lower Hudson Valley. Coming on the heels of AirTran Airways' announcement of a new nonstop service from Stewart International Airport to Atlanta, Ft. Lauderdale, Orlando and Tampa, these flights only increase our ability to bring people into the Hudson Valley to visit and do business. I am very pleased that AirTran Airways continues to support New York's regional airports, because the more direct flights we have, the greater the economic opportunity for our state."
In addition to convenient schedules and great customer service, AirTran Airways offers its Westchester County passengers an award winning frequent flier program, Business Class seating on every flight and XM Satellite Radio available at every seat with more than 100 channels of commercial-free music, news and sports.
