AirTran Airways has announced a partnership with American Express OPEN and the OPEN Savings program. To celebrate the partnership, OPEN Savings is sponsoring free onboard Wi-Fi on all AirTran Airways flights from March 13 through March 27, 2010.
Starting today, American Express OPEN card holders will be eligible for a five percent discount on all of the low-cost carrier’s more than 700 daily flights. Any ticket purchased at www.airtran.com, via 1-800-AIR-TRAN or at any AirTran Airways ticket counter with an American Express Business Card will receive the discount to our already low fares.
“As the only airline with Business Class and Wi-Fi on every flight, we are the perfect partner for OPEN Savings members,” said Tad Hutcheson, AirTran Airways’ vice president of marketing and sales. “OPEN Savings members can now enjoy a significant discount while staying productive in the air and reaping the benefits of affordable Business Class.”
In addition to being the only airline with Business Class and Wi-Fi on every flight, the airline also offers other business friendly features, including; affordable walk up and one-way fares, no Saturday night stay requirements and complimentary XM Satellite Radio with CNBC, Bloomberg Radio, CNN and Fox News channels.
“Time-pressed small business travelers who are weary of coupons or special offer codes now have a better and simpler way to save, with OPEN Savings,” said Kirk Fitzsimmons, VP OPEN Savings. “With this new partnership, small businesses can reduce their airline expenses just by using their American Express Business Card.”
