AirTran Airways, a subsidiary of AirTran Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: AAI), today announced that it plans to track one of the most storied aviators of all time, Santa Claus, as he completes his annual reindeer-powered flight around the world.
Inspired by the recent success of NASA's Mars Rover Mission, AirTran Airways' System Operations Control (SOC) center in Orlando, has developed its own space-aged reporting device. AirTran Airways' Satellite-based Aviation Navigational Tracking Apparatus, or S.A.N.T.A., will enable the low-fare airline to keep the world abreast of Santa Claus' holiday adventure.
The airline's delightfully fun, albeit completely fictitious reports, will be distributed via national newswire on December 24 at 10:00 a.m., 3:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. EST.
