AirTran Airways has begun daily nonstop service between Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) and L.F. Wade International Airport (BDA) in St. George’s parish, Bermuda.
Bermuda is the latest destination in AirTran Airways‘ international route network, which includes Aruba; Cancun, Mexico; Montego Bay, Jamaica; Nassau, Bahamas; and Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.
Atlanta becomes the second city in AirTran’s network to offer nonstop service to the mid-Atlantic resort island. The low-cost carrier began offering flights to Bermuda from Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) last month.
“We are excited to partner with AirTran Airways in providing new service to our island,” says The Hon. Patrice K. Minors, minister of business development and tourism for Bermuda. “Atlanta is a wonderful U.S. city with many Bermuda fans, friends and family residing there. We are happy that this service will help continue to build a relationship while offering travelers an easy escape to Bermuda.”
The carrier’s schedule between Atlanta and Bermuda sees flight FL1815 leaving ATL at 10:25 a.m. daily and landing at BDA at 2:25 p.m. local time. In the other direction, flight FL1816 is timed to depart BDA at 2:40 p.m. and arrive at ATL at 4:50 p.m. local time.
