AirTran Airways makes money, and one of the reasons it does is that the airline flies to communities willing to subsidize the service. The latest: Grand Rapids, Michigan, which is waiving some airport fees and reimbursing AirTran for $250,000 worth of marketing expenses. Beginning May 4, AirTran will fly twice a day from Grand Rapids to Baltimore/Washington and once a day to Orlando.
Speaking of BWI, AirTran will also launch twice-daily flights to Jacksonville, Florida, on May 4. That’ll put AirTran in direct competition with Southwest Airlines on the route. AirTran will also add weekend Orlando-Des Moines flights on March 6.
