as our second non-stop market," said John Kirby, AirTran Airways
senior director of strategic planning and scheduling. "Advance
bookings for our Atlanta flights remain strong, and service to the

daily nonstop low-cost flights to and from Branson," added Branson
Airport CEO Steve Peet. "We view AirTran as a great and growing
partner. This is another big step in our expanding partnership with
