Stocks in this article: JPM

Today, Chase Card Services announced that existing AirTran consumer credit cardholders will transition from the current issuer to the AirTran ® A+ Rewards SM Credit Card from Chase. Beginning April 25, 2013, all AirTran Credit Cardholder accounts will be owned and serviced by Chase. Cardholders will continue to have the ability to earn rewards at an accelerated rate while redeeming for travel to more than 95 destinations served by AirTran ® Airways and Southwest Airlines ® .

Beginning this week, cardholders will receive notification about the change from Chase. Cardholders transitioning to the AirTran A+ Rewards Credit Card from Chase will receive a new credit card for use beginning April 29, 2013, and any remaining A+ Rewards Dollars will automatically transfer to the new Chase credit card account. Cardholders must update merchants and bill payment services with their new account number for recurring bills being paid automatically. Additionally, any existing convenience checks must post to the existing account from the previous issuer by April 25, 2013. Cardholders have the same annual fee and APRs as incurred with the previous issuer. Cardholders should continue to use their existing card until April 29.

“Valued AirTran Cardholders will continue to have access to frequent flyer benefits that enhance their travel experience,” said Naney Pandit, general manager, Chase. “Chase has designed benefits that allow Cardholders to earn quickly, redeem easily and fly to more destinations on AirTran Airways and Southwest Airlines.”

AirTran A+ Rewards Credit Cardholders moving to Chase will continue to enjoy benefits, including:

Members of Rapid Rewards® (Southwest Airlines) and A+ Rewards (AirTran Airways) frequent flyer programs are able to transfer their loyalty rewards between the two programs to redeem for reward travel to more than 95 destinations, including Mexico and the Caribbean. Cardholders can redeem for flights on AirTran Airways to places such as Charlotte, Memphis and Key West, or flights on Southwest Airlines to destinations such as Dallas, Nashville and San Diego.
