AirTran Integration Homestretch Brings Major Milestones

Not applicable
Southwest Airlines has reached a major milestone today in the final stages of the integration of AirTran Airways by launching international flights on Southwest metal to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, and Mexico City, Mexico! As of today, all flights previously flown by AirTran between seven international destinations and nine domestic gateway cities are now flown exclusively by Southwest. Additionally, Southwest is proud to announce that we have finalized the integration of Southwest.com and AirTran.com. Effective today, Customers attempting to access AirTran.com will be routed to an informational page on Southwest.com where they can book travel, view integration-related FAQs, and find loyalty program information. Also, Rapid Rewards is now the sole loyalty program of the combined carrier, and all A+ Rewards Members who did not already have an account have been enrolled in Rapid Rewards. As a result, former AirTran frequent flyers will now be able to benefit from our unlimited reward seats, no blackout dates, and points that don’t expire.* As we near the completion of this momentous integration effort, all AirTran-branded signage in airports systemwide will transition to Southwest signage in an attempt to familiarize our AirTran Customers with the Southwest brand. By finalizing the integration of our online resources, rewards programs, and airport signage, we are one step closer to our goal of One LUV: One Family. *Points do not expire as long as you have flight or Partner earning activity every 24 months. Benefits apply to points transactions.
