AirTran adds Milwaukee?Washington, DC service
From 11 June AirTran Airways is to operate two daily nonstop flights between General Mitchell International Airport in Milwaukee, WI, and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport in Washington, DC.
"AirTran Airways is happy to resume nonstop service from Milwaukee to Washington, DC," said Kevin Healy, senior vice-president of marketing and planning at AirTran. "It seems to us that the folks in Washington could use a little 'stimulation' so we've expanded our schedule, making it even easier and more affordable for business, as well as leisure travelers, to lend Washington a helping hand."
With the additional service to Washington, AirTran Airways will offer 33 daily departures from Milwaukee to 19 non-stop destinations.
