Comment Of Senator Patrick Leahy On The Southwest-AirTran Merger

“Now that the Department of Justice has concluded its review of the Southwest-AirTran merger, I hope that Southwest Airlines will strongly consider resuming service to Burlington International Airport.  Like many states across the country, Vermont depends on affordable and accessible air travel to help drive our state and local economy.  Returning the service once provided by AirTran to Burlington will benefit both Vermonters and visitors to our state.”
