AirTran expands Milwaukee operations
AirTran Airways will increase capacity and expand its Milwaukee operations by more than 40% with new and extended service.
In May, the airline will begin daily nonstop flights between Milwaukee and the four new destinations: Branson, MO; St Louis, MO; and Minneapolis-St Paul, MN; plus seasonal service to Denver, CO. The new flights are part of the carrier's strategy to expand service from General Mitchell International Airport in Milwaukee and bolster travel options for local residents.
The new and extended service will take AirTran's daily departures from Milwaukee for the peak summer schedule to 30, up from 21 in summer 2008, equating to a 43% increase year-over-year. Additionally, the number of seats available per week on departing flights will grow by 39%. The airline will offer nonstop service to 18 destinations from Milwaukee, an increase from 14 previously.
The carrier will offer two daily roundtrips to Minneapolis-St Paul effective 5 May, with an increase to three daily roundtrips from 21 May. Service to Branson will begin on 11 May with one daily roundtrip flight. AirTran will also offer two daily roundtrips to St Louis and one daily roundtrip to Denver, both from 21 May. Seasonal service to Denver will end on 8 September.
In addition to the new routes, AirTran Airways will increase three seasonal destinations to year-round service, flights to Los Angeles will return on 14 April; service to Boston will return on 21 May; and winter seasonal service to Tampa/St Petersburg will be maintained year-round. In addition, seasonal service to both San Francisco and Seattle/Tacoma will be extended to 30 October and could be added to the roster of year-round flights in the future.
