AirTran cuts flights to VT, nobody cares
It didn't even last a year. AirTran's nonstop service between Burlington, VT and the Washington, D.C. area is now
Well, I guess it really isn't "seasonal" after all. AirTran's decision to run flights from May to August – with the possibility of April and September – seems to overlook the fact that ski season is the state's big draw.
All hope is not lost, though. Burlington International's airport director, Brian Searles, says the airport is in discussions with AirTran in the hopes of returning year-round service to the city. Vermont politicians, including Governor Jim Douglas and Senator Patrick Leahy have been getting in on the action as well. With AirTran's $273.8 million loss last year, it seems these guys are wasting their breath.
