GULFPORT — AirTran Airways has announced that it is ending its flights to Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport.

Christopher White, an AirTran spokesman, tells The Sun Herald that flights will end March 6.

The low-fare airline offers flights from Gulfport to Atlanta and Tampa, Fla., three times a week.

White says the airline looked at the performance at the Gulfport airport and decided it could no longer support the flights.

Jeremiah Gerald, director of air service and business development at the airport, says the business community wasn’t able to come up with enough money to keep the airline.

He says Gulfport-Biloxi has a couple of perspective offers from other airlines looking to step in and fill the void that AirTran will leave.
