AirTran Airways is going to begin service to Florida from Lehigh Valley International Airport in eastern Pennsylvania.

AirTran announced on Wednesday that it will start roundtrip nonstop flights between LVIA and Orlando and Ft. Lauderdale beginning June 25.

The low-cost carrier will offer introductory one-way fares of $79 between LVIA and Orlando and $84 one-way between LVIA and Ft. Lauderdale.

It marks the third carrier to fly to the Sunshine State from LVIA. Allegiant Air flies to Orlando and Direct Air joined LVIA last year, offering flights to Punta Gorda, just north of Fort Myers.

The additional service comes at a time of declining air travel. Passenger volume has fallen for 12 straight months at LVIA.
