AirTran promotes new nonstop flights in unique ways

AirTran Airways, a subsidiary of AirTran Holdings, Inc. recently announced that it has provided airline tickets to Milwaukee resident and recent television celebrity, Molly Malaney, so she can visit “The Bachelor” star boyfriend Jason Mesnick in Seattle. The company wanted to re-emphasize its mantra “Go. There’s Nothing Stopping You,” and promote a number of new routes which will increase the airline’s service in Milwaukee by more than 55 percent.

When service fully expands in June, AirTran Airways will offer 33 daily departures from General Mitchell International Airport to 19 nonstop destinations.

“AirTran Airways believes high fares shouldn’t stop people from being together,” said Tad Hutcheson, vice president of marketing and sales, AirTran Airways. “Our low fares and extensive service make it easy and affordable for Milwaukeeans to visit friends, family and business associates across the country. We wish Jason and Molly well as they explore their budding romance.”

The tickets were delivered to Malaney along with a bouquet of roses, a trademark of the show.

AirTran will also host an event with The Hunger Task Force of Milwaukee on Thursday, April 23 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Helfaer Field Atrium just outside Miller Park, to promote its new nonstop service to the Twin Cities. AirTran will give away 500 free round trip tickets from Milwaukee to Minneapolis/St. Paul to twins or anyone with Minnie, Saint or Paul in their name. Participants are being asked to bring non perishable food items that will benefit the Hunger Task Force, which will also receive a $10,000 check the day of the event, courtesy of AirTran Airways.
