AirTran Airways is boosting its service between Flint, Michigan’s Bishop International Airport (FNT) and Florida sunspot destinations, a seasonal move it carries out each winter.
The carrier is resuming nonstop service between FNT and Fort Lauderdale (FLL) on November 4, offering four round-trip flights a week with Boeing 717s.
The airline’s flight FL1231 is scheduled to depart FLL at 3:17 p.m., arriving at FNT at 6:17 p.m. The return flight, FL1232, is timed to leave FNT just 35 minutes later at 6:52 p.m. and arrive at FLL at 9:57 p.m. The flights will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
In a seasonal escalation of service, AirTran Airways is also increasing its Saturday-only Flint-Tampa (TPA) schedule to daily Boeing 717 service on October 6, two full months ahead of last year’s seasonal service increase. The airline’s flight FL1283 is scheduled to depart TPA each day at 10:30 a.m. and arrive at FNT at 1:06 p.m. Return flight FL1282 is timed to leave FNT at 2:35 p.m. and arrive at TPA at 5:17 p.m.
Additionally, the airline’s seasonal daily Flint-Fort Myers South West Florida International Airport (RSW) service returns on November 4, also as a Boeing 717 flight. The outbound flight, FL1416, is timed to leave RSW at 11:19 a.m.and arrive at FNT at 2:12 p.m., with the return flight FL1417 departing FNT at 2:47 p.m. and arriving back at RSW at 5:43 p.m.
AirTran Airways also flies daily to a fourth Florida destination, Orlando International Airport, from FNT on a year-round basis.
