Southwest Sees Atlanta as Its Largest City on AirTran

Atlanta, home to the world’s busiest airport, may become Southwest Airlines Co.’s largest city in the coming years when the low-fare carrier buys AirTran Holdings Inc., an executive said.

AirTran has 202 daily departures from Atlanta, and Southwest may “do well north of that,” Bob Jordan, Southwest’s executive vice president for strategy and planning, said today at a media event at the carrier’s Dallas headquarters.
