AirTran Airways will add daily flights from Atlanta to the island of Bermuda beginning May 26, 2011.

The seasonal flights will run until Sept. 6, AirTran announced from a Latin American airline conference in San Jose, Costa Rica.

The Orlando-based airline, which operates its largest hub in Atlanta, will also add Bermuda flights from its hub at Baltimore/Washington Thurgood Marshall International Airport. Those flights begin April 7 and last through Oct. 24.

“With such strong business, cultural and educational ties with both Atlanta and the Baltimore-Washington area, the introduction of these two flights brings with it a choice in direct air service along with added seats at lower fares,” said Terry Lister, Bermuda’s minister of transport, in a statement.
