AirTran Airways, a unit of AirTran Holdings Inc., on Tuesday launched a fare sale for travel to all of its destinations between this month and November.

Passengers have to buy a ticket before Thursday to get the sale for travel from July 16 to Nov. 16.

The lowest fares are available for travel on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays.

Airfare sales are rare in the summer, because it's generally the strongest season for the airlines. A majority of the sales carriers are launching this summer have short buying windows, meant to draw crowds on social media sites Facebook and Twitter.
