AirTran Airways has begun its move from Concourse D to Concourse E at Philadelphia International Airport (PHL).

While the ticket counter and baggage claim will remain at PHL’s concourse D for the next few months, flights now are operating from concourse E, gates E6 and E8.


Ultimately, all AirTran Airways operations will be consolidated in concourse E in a new, state-of-the-art facility with expanded gate areas, upgraded ticket counters and easier access to security checkpoints. Baggage claim is slated to relocate to concourse E later this year and ticket counter operations are scheduled to move in the spring of 2010.

AirTran Airways has been flying out of Philadelphia International Airport for the past nine years. The airline offers daily nonstop flights to Orlando and Atlanta, where passengers can connect to dozens of destinations.
