AirTran Makes Dallas And Charlotte Chicago's Biggest Names

50 people named Dallas and Charlotte received free round-trip tickets anywhere the airline flies in the U.S.

AirTran Airways, a subsidiary of AirTran Holdings, Inc., today took name-dropping to new heights as it celebrated its new nonstop service from Chicago to Dallas/Ft. Worth and Charlotte. The airline recently began daily nonstop flights between Chicago's Midway International Airport and Dallas/Ft. Worth International Airport and Charlotte Douglas International Airport.

AirTran Airways, Chicago Midway's second largest carrier, and US 99.5 FM, Chicago's country station, issued a call-out to anyone in the Chicagoland area named Charlotte and Dallas to join them in the heart of the windy city to celebrate the airline's newest destinations from Midway. Hundreds of Chicagoans flocked to Michigan Plaza in downtown Chicago to celebrate with AirTran Airways' Crew Members and on-air personalities from US 99.5. The first 50 people at the event named Dallas and Charlotte received free round-trip tickets anywhere the airline flies in the U.S. Complete with a red carpet entrance, entertainment and giveaways, AirTran Airways proved that -- for people named Dallas and Charlotte -- it's all in a name.

"Regardless of their name, AirTran Airways continues to offer Chicago business and leisure travelers new and affordable options to some of the most desired destinations in the country," said Tad Hutcheson, AirTran Airways' vice president of marketing and sales. "With the youngest all-Boeing fleet of aircraft in America, affordable Business Class, and assigned seating on every flight, there's no better way for Chicagoans to get acquainted with Dallas and Charlotte than by flying AirTran Airways."

AirTran Airways' addition of nonstop service to Dallas and Charlotte builds on the airline's expanding route map from Chicago's Midway International Airport just in time for the busy summer travel season. The airline currently operates 32 daily flights from Chicago.
