AirTran Airways has announced a partnership with American Express OPEN and the OPEN Savings programme, with the deal being celebrated by OPEN Savings sponsoring free onboard Wi-Fi on all AirTran Airways flights between 13 March and 27 March.
Effective immediately, American Express OPEN card holders will be eligible for a 5% discount on all of the low-fare airline’s more than 700 daily flights. Any ticket purchased via the airline’s website, its toll-free number or at any AirTran Airways ticket counter with an American Express Business Card will receive the discount.
"As the only airline with business class and Wi-Fi on every flight, we are the perfect partner for OPEN Savings members," said Tad Hutcheson, AirTran Airways’ vice president of marketing and sales. "OPEN Savings members can now enjoy a significant discount while staying productive in the air and reaping the benefits of affordable Business Class."
"Time-pressed small business travellers who are weary of coupons or special offer codes now have a better and simpler way to save, with OPEN Savings," explained Kirk Fitzsimmons, VP OPEN Savings. "With this new partnership, small businesses can reduce their airline expenses just by using their American Express Business Card."
