Football Hall of Famer Anthony Munoz and Comedian Mark Malkoff Celebrate New Flights to Fort Lauderdale and Ft. Myers with Tarmac Tailgate

AirTran Airways, a subsidiary of AirTran Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: AAI), today announced nonstop service between Akron-Canton Airport and two popular vacation destinations in Florida, Fort Lauderdale and Ft. Myers. AirTran Airways will offer flights to Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport four times per week and flights to Southwest Florida International Airport in Ft. Myers five times per week initially and then daily beginning in mid November.

Comedian Mark Malkoff, who has spent the month of June living on AirTran Airways planes, will be in attendance to celebrate the new flights, along with Pro Football Hall of Famer Anthony Munoz. Munoz will also help advance Mark's fledgling football career at a mini training camp and tailgate party right on the airport ramp.

"This return of more Florida service complements AirTran Airways' existing popular year-round flights from Northeast Ohio to Orlando and Tampa," said Tad Hutcheson, vice president of marketing and sales for AirTran Airways. "With our Gogo(R) Inflight Internet service and XM Satellite Radio, travelers can sit back and relax just as they would on the beach, en route to some of Florida's most popular vacation spots."

"We are so pleased that AirTran Airways has brought back service to Fort Myers and Fort Lauderdale, both popular destinations for Northeast Ohio sun seekers," said Rick McQueen, president & CEO of Akron-Canton Airport "With nonstop flights to four Florida cities on AirTran Airways, getting to 'sunsational' leisure destinations is easier than ever. Travelers will love the simplicity of flying from Canton and will love the affordable fares, too."

"As AirTran Airways continues to expand its route network, I get to travel and experience more than ever before, like hanging out with pro football star Anthony Munoz," said Mark Malkoff. "Since AirTran Airways is currently outfitting all of their planes with Wi-Fi, I also get to stay connected with family and friends even at 35,000 ft."
