AirTran Airways, a subsidiary of AirTran Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: AAI), has announced that it will open registration for its new AirTran U standby travel program for young travelers that will replace the airline's popular X-Fares program, now in its 10th year. Now Spring Breakers can hit the beach and have money left over for next semester's textbooks.

AirTran U is the best college deal around -- all applicants between the ages of 18 and 22 are cleared for travel on a standby-only basis to any of the 51 cities AirTran Airways currently serves (excludes Grand Bahama Island) for a fare of just $69* per short-haul segment or $89* per long-haul segment of travel. To participate, travelers simply select the destination, dates and times they want to travel and arrive at the AirTran Airways counter no fewer than two hours before the scheduled time of departure. A new addition to the program is that AirTran U passengers can now earn 0.5 A+ Rewards credits** per completed trip.

"Whether they are hitting the beach over Spring Break or heading home for the weekend, students and young vacationers can save money on flights with AirTran U," said Tad Hutcheson, AirTran Airways' vice president of marketing and sales.
