For obvious reasons, can't say which one - but sometime overnight a new city will be added to the growing list of ATA destinations. Something brand new and from Indianapolis  Wink/being sarcastic

Ohhh.. the obvious reason has me wondering... would it be in some sort of retaliation to NW? If that is the case.. then there are only 2 choices.. RDU or BDL..

if not, the only other obvious reason to me would be the Int'l flight to Germany...

If not either, then I am stumped...




Aiming High and going far..

RDU and BDL are pretty well covered by what they just received, apparently RDU got the flight banking on pharmaceutical traffic between the two cities...

I'll venture to say SAN..

How is San Diego obvious? I must be missing something. And I do have to agree... RDU-IND is a serious Eli Lily route...

I read an earlier post that Berlin Germany said they were working out something with an american carrier, they didnt specify who though. Alot of attention was drawn to ATA

Somehow I doubt that Berlin would be inaugurated from IND. First off, TZ hasn't the equipment to operate it non-stop. Possibly a one-stop in BWI or EWR or BOS, from MDW, would do it, though. My bet is on RDU.

What is the point of this post if you are not going to at least give some direction... North, South, East, West?

could it be STL?

Southwest dropped this route back in 2001, and AA has prop flights STL-IND, could ATA fill 1 738 STL-IND?

Otherwise....BWI sounds like a nice city to get into.

Far south eh...

Aruba and Cancun already covered by ATA, and the new city is "brand new"
Some other Carribean island? Or maybe Costa Rica?

I see no business destinations south of Miami that would benefit from a flight to IND.

Was just looking on Amadeus.net (which already has the route showing) and its an interesting circle trip that I never seen us do before that includes another city ATA already serves. Meaning you will have to make one stop on the return from this new city (or one stop on the way to the old city).

Yea, I thought that was a bit of a surprise too. Ambassadair fills many STT flights every year and I suppose taking that into consideration and combining this with SJU it should be a success.

ATA are in intense discussions with the german city of Cologne as advised by the airport's spokesman.They should become the airport's first long-distance LCC ,with some of the tickets starting at 99 Euros/segment.Possible destinations in the US are not yet clear but Philadelphia and/or Baltimore could be among the destinations.

ATA needs to get things cleared up here at home before jumping the big pond. This includes getting the F/As into an agreement for concessions and figuring out a 100-seat aircraft (F/A agreement first). They also need to take a JetBlue approach to international flying...skim the traffic off of higher yeilding & high volume routes. I'm not saying go right after New York to London...but that seems a bit better than Cologne.
