Not too much longer now for AirTran, as final flight date set

AirTran’s final flight has been set before it will be integrated with Southwest Airlines.

As of now, December 28 will be the final flight for AirTran, as after that things will finally be fully integrated with Southwest. The final flight will be AirTran Airways flight number 1, and it will fly between Atlanta and Tampa — just like the carrier’s very first flight way back in 1993 during the ValuJet days.
