AirTran Flight Attendants Reach Tentative Contract Agreement

Date: June 23, 2003

WASHINGTON, DC – AirTran flight attendants, represented by the Association of Flight Attendants, AFL-CIO, have reached a tentative contract agreement with the airline.

“The tentative agreement includes important improvements for our flight attendants and it enables AirTran to continue on its course of growth in the future,” said AFA AirTran Master Executive Council President Jon Edenfield. “It’s important in these turbulent times for our industry that we could work with the company to reach an agreement that’s good for the flight attendants and good for the airline.”

The current flight attendant contract became amendable in October 2002. AirTran flight attendants will have a chance to review and vote on the tentative contract before details will be released. The information and voting process will take approximately one month. A simple majority of AirTran flight attendants must vote “yes” in order for the contract to ratify.

More than 50,000 flight attendants at 26 airlines -- including more than 1,000 flight attendants at AirTran -- join together to form AFA, the world’s largest flight attendant union. For more information, visit AFA’s website at www.afanet.org.
