AirTran availability with Southwest points

You can now use your Southwest points to book flights with AirTran. Southwest and AirTran are in the process of merging, and for a while you couldn’t use Southwest points to book directly on AirTran.

Since the merger process has already begun, now when you search for flight availability with Southwest, you also get AirTran flights on the same screen.

For instance, you can now book a roundtrip flight on AirTran from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida to San Juan, Puerto Rico using Southwest points for a total of 12,144 points.

For our friends on Central Time, for example, you can fly roundtrip from Austin, TX to Boston for 24,241 points.

There are many connections you can try. It is great to know that Southwest points have become more valuable because of the increased availability of award flights. Even better, if you have the Southwest Companion pass, you can book the sample trips above plus any others for you AND your companion for the same amount of points as long as you book the flights with Southwest points on the Southwest website. Two for one!
