REPORT: AIRTRAN TO LOSE OUT ON MILLIONS IN SEPTEMBER

250px-AirTran_Airways_logo.svgFunding to attract Airtran Airlines to Atlantic City will likely be gone in a couple of months. The Press of Atlantic City reports that in Sept., millions of dollars in subsidies will expire that is provided by the South Jersey Transportation Authority. The report said that up to $3.1 million was available for its first two years of service to ensure that any shortfalls in operating expenses were met. SJTA officials say that they can’t afford to keep that service up and it will go away this year. Airtran was recently bought out by Southwest and questions remain over how that may effect service in Atlantic City. Airtran only provides direct service to Atlanta from Atlantic City.
