AirTran launches flights fare sale for late summer/early fall

ORLANDO — AirTran Airways, which is now operated by Southwest Airlines Co., on Tuesday launched a late summer and early fall sale to entice travelers to keep flying at a time when demand usually drops.

The fares are available for purchase through Aug. 1 for travel from July 30 through Nov. 16 for most cities. Lowest fares are for travel on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Prices range from a one-way, off peak trip between Atlanta and Richmond, Va. for $59 each way to a peak time flight between Milwaukee and Cancun for $134 each way.

Off-peak sale fares are valid for travel on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and peak sale fares are valid for travel on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

AirTran's parent Southwest joined other airlines on Friday in a widespread price hike attempt, only to roll back those $4 to $10 increases on Sunday. Other airlines followed Southwest's move on Monday.
