AirTran Airways' New 717-200 Aircraft
AirTran Airways' new aircraft was carefully designed with the passenger in mind at each stage of development to create the safest, most comfortable and luxurious airplane for short distances and frequent flights. The 717's new, lean engine, BR715, by BMW/Rolls Royce, makes this aircraft the quietest and most environmentally friendly airplane in its class.
