AirTran Airways has revealed plans to add Huntsville/Decatur, Alabama, to its growing route map on 27 May 2010 with services to both Baltimore-Washington International and Orlando International airports.
The roundtrip, nonstop flights will be operated with the airline’s Boeing 717s.
"Huntsville is known as the ‘Rocket City’ and AirTran Airways is pleased to take the residents of northern Alabama to new heights of air travel," declared Kevin Healy, AirTran’s senior vice-president of marketing and planning. "Connecting Huntsville to two of our largest operations gives residents access not only to our award-winning service and low-fares but to virtually our entire network."
AirTran highlighted that when service begins, it will be the only carrier to offer direct flights from Huntsville to Orlando and the only low-fare carrier to fly from Huntsville to Baltimore/Washington.
