AirTran Airways said on Friday it will fly between Des Moines, Iowa, and Orlando, Fla., on Saturdays and Sundays starting March 6.

AirTran said the new flights would be the only nonstop flights between those two cities.

AirTran is adding several cities beginning in January. It currently has no flights to Des Moines, although partner SkyWest Airlines is adding flights between there and Milwaukee starting early next year.

AirTran shares fell a penny to close at $4.15 on a shortened trading day.
