AirTran Airways Expands Service From Washington Dulles

New Nonstop Service to Orlando and Boston

ORLANDO, Fla., Nov. 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — AirTran Airways, a subsidiary of AirTran Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:AAI) , today announced that the airline will add new daily roundtrip flights from Washington Dulles International Airport to Orlando International Airport, effective January 4, 2006, and Boston’s Logan International Airport, effective February 15, 2006. The new flights will be served by the airline’s popular Boeing 717 and Boeing 737 aircraft.

“AirTran Airways is responding to the demand from our customers for increased service to popular vacation and business markets,” said Kevin Healy, AirTran Airways’ vice president of planning and sales. “Travelers from the Washington, DC, area have clearly embraced AirTran Airways’ low-cost, high-quality air service. Our product combines key business attributes — new Boeing aircraft, assigned seating, large overhead bins and business class — with low fares that never require roundtrip purchase or a Saturday night stay, which all of our customers appreciate. With these new flights, AirTran Airways will expand our schedule to eleven daily departures nonstop from Washington Dulles to three cities: our Atlanta hub, Orlando and Boston. From the Washington Metro area, we will offer more than 55 daily departures from Dulles, Reagan-National and BWI to a dozen cities. Soon, we expect to announce service from the Washington area to Chicago starting this spring.”
