Interesting that the article mentions that "officials" are pushing IWA at AirTran. I would be very, very, VERY surprised if AirTran opened service to Phoenix it would be at IWA and PHX
. IWA is still more or less in the sticks (far less so than it used to be) and has no freeway access.
My only concern w/ AirTran is where would they fly to? Presumably ATL
, but that market is pretty heavily covered between US and DL
. Possible alternate markets (BWI
) are again well covered by US, WN
, et al.
Is there enough demand for AirTran to run 1-3 flights a day btwn say ATL
? And is there enough gate, ticket counter space, office space somewhere @ PHX
