ORLANDO, Fla., April 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- AirTran Airways and the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, AFL-CIO, (AFA), which represents AirTran Airways' work force of approximately 1,300 flight attendants, today announced they have reached a tentative agreement on a new 42-month contract. The tentative agreement was reached with the assistance of John J. Kane, a federal mediator. In addition, the AFA endorsed the tentative agreement and will promptly send the agreement to the flight attendant membership for ratification.

Terms of the agreement with the AFA will not be publicly disclosed until flight attendants have completed a membership ratification vote, which is expected within approximately thirty days. Once ratified, the airline expects the agreement to take effect June 1, 2005.

AirTran Airways, one of America's largest low-fare airlines with 6,400 friendly, professional Crew Members, operates over 500 daily flights to 47 destinations. The airline's hub is at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, where it is the second largest carrier. AirTran Airways recently added the fuel-efficient Boeing 737-700 aircraft to create America's youngest all-Boeing fleet. The airline is also the first carrier to install XM Satellite Radio on a commercial aircraft. For reservations or more information, visit
