Orlando, Florida – AirTran Airways announced that it will now offer Beck’s Pilsner beer for sale onboard. 

Tad Hutcheson, vice president of marketing and sales for AirTran Airways said they have decided to add Beck’s to the menu because customers have been asking for more beer options over the years.

“By adding Beck’s Pilsner to the menu of Anheuser-Busch products served on flights, it allows adult beer drinkers an opportunity to sample a wider selection of our beers while enjoying their AirTran Airways flight,” said Greg Fleischut , vice president, national retail sales on-premise.

Golden in color, Beck’s is a classic German pilsner with a robust, distinctive full-bodied taste, a fresh “hoppy” bouquet and a rich, full head. It is brewed using only top grade barley, hand-selected hops, fresh glacier water and Beck’s exclusive strain of yeast that’s been cultured and cultivated for generations.

With the new addition, AirTran Airways boards more beers than any other airline, all Anheuser-Busch beers: Budweiser, Bud Light, Bud Light Lime, Michelob Ultra.

AirTran Airways, a subsidiary of AirTran Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: AAI) and a Fortune 1000 company, has been ranked the number one low cost carrier in the Airline Quality Rating study for the past two years.
