History

In 1992, the predecessor airline of AirTran, ValuJet Airlines was founded by airline industry veterans including an executive group from the former Southern Airways and pilots, mechanics and flight attendants from the defunct Eastern Air Lines. ValuJet Airlines kept developing and was named as the top company in the famed Georgia 100 as published by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and the airline posted high margins.

The original AirTran Airways, a Boeing 737 operator with service to/from Orlando, was founded by AirTran Corporation. In 1994, AirTran Holdings purchased a start up 737 operator named Conquest Sun and renamed the airline AirTran Airways. In 1995, AirTran Airways was spun off by Mesaba one member of Aitran Corporation, and formed its own independent holding company named Airways Corporation. In October 1997, ValuJet, Inc., the holding company for ValuJet Airlines, Inc., acquired Airways Corporation, Inc., the holding company for AirTran Airways, Inc. of Orlando, Florida
