Southwest Airlines recently announced it will soon be cutting more AirTran Airways flights on various routes this fall.
Southwest Airlines, which solely owns AirTran Airways and seeking to integrate its operations after merger, said that it is compelled to take decision to cut more AirTran Airways routes this fall because it is transforming AirTran Airways’ hub into exclusive Southwest Airlines operations.
AirTran Airways routes which are being eliminated by Southwest Airlines this fall from Atlanta include Buffalo, Pensacola and Memphis.
Dallas-based Southwest Airlines disclosed that it will be adding flights to Hartford and Oklahoma City from Atlanta.
The airline further stated that it will be converting Atlanta-San Juan and Puerto Rico routes being operated by AirTran Airways to Southwest Airlines service under its new flight schedule starting from November 3, 2013.
Southwest Airlines is currently operating 30 flights from Atlanta, while AirTran Airways is operating nearly 140 flights every day from Atlanta.
