About Airtran Airways

AirTran Airways was an American low-cost airline that was headquartered in Orlando, Florida then in Dallas, Texas after its acquisition by Southwest Airlines. AirTran Airways operated nearly 700 daily flights, primarily in the eastern and midwestern United States, with its principal hub at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, where it operated nearly 200 daily departures. It was fully integrated into Southwest Airlines on December 28, 2014.

AirTran Airways operated a two-class configuration featuring Business Class and Economy Class. Business Class included rows 1–3 and coach began with row 10; rows 4–9 are skipped for numbering purposes and 13 is skipped due to superstition. AirTran Airways did not participate in any major global airline alliances, but the airline had a codeshare agreement with its parent airline, Southwest Airlines.

The airline was founded in 1993 as Conquest Sun Airlines and — in the same year — launched its first service from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, which was its airport hub at the time. In 1994, the airline rebranded to AirTran Airways, which is what it's still known as today. Along with the rebrand, AirTran Airways moved its hub to Orlando International Airport (MCO), which is the airport that it used as its main base throughout its time as AirTran Airways.

In 2011, AirTran Airways was bought out by Southwest Airlines. The airline gradually stopped operating flights as AirTran Airways as the merger into Southwest began. The merger was fully complete by the end of 2014, with many of AirTran's services taken on by Southwest and others completely dropped.



At the time that it merged with Southwest, AirTran Airways flew to more than 100 destinations across the US and to other parts of North America and Central America. This included destinations such as Mexico City, Punta Cana, Montego Bay, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Orlando, Miami, Atlanta, Chicago, Wichita, Grand Rapid, St.Louis, New York City, Houston, Burlington, Seattle, Charleston and many more.

What Happened to ValuJet?

ValuJet was an airline that was established in 1993. ValuJet offered many domestic services across the US from its base in Georgia, as well as some international routes to Canada. After some difficult years of operations, the airline was grounded for a few months, before it returned with a smaller fleet and smaller route network. In 1997, the airline's parent holding company acquired AirTran Airways. One of the first courses of action that the company took was to merge ValuJet and AirTran Airways operations. AirTran Airways continued as the surviving brand and, therefore, the ValuJet name stopped being used with the merger.


Hub Airport

Orlando International Airport

Orlando International Airport (MCO) is the main international airport in Orlando, Florida and was the hub airport for AirTran Airways. The airline used Orlando International as its main hub for the whole time that flew under the AirTran Airways name. It previously used Fort Lauderdale as its hub and, when it merged with Southwest, began using Dallas/Fort Worth as its hub. Orlando International has four runways, two terminal buildings and handles over 50 million passengers each year. AirTran also had secondary hubs at Atlanta, Baltimore and Milwaukee.
