AirTran Airways has a pleasant surprise for its customers. The airline, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Southwest Airlines will be offering seasonal flights to various destinations within the United States between March 8, 2014 and April 6, 2014.
The carrier along with Southwest Airlines will be offering nonstop service to five new cities. The decision to provide seasonal service is influenced by high demand during that period.

At present, it operates about 700 daily flights connecting the eastern and the western parts of the United States with each other.
