Because AirTran Airways is now part of Southwest Airlines, you can redeem your credits for flights on both AirTran Airways and Southwest Airlines. In 2011, Southwest Airlines acquired AirTran Airways and is currently in the process of folding it into the Southwest brand. For now, the two brands are operating as separate airlines. As part of the process, Southwest Airlines has aligned the AirTran Airways A+ Rewards with its Rapid Rewards to allow for easy credit conversion between the parent company’s two frequent flier programs.
