The jet, dubbed Dolphin 1 also publicizes the aquarium’s newest attraction, the AT&T Dolphin Tales gallery and theater.

Georgia Aquarium’s new $110 million dolphin exhibit features a 1.8 million gallon habitat featuring bottlenose dolphins. The gallery includes a lobby featuring an expansive underwater viewing window, and an 1,800-seat theater featuring a live production with dolphins, human actors and singers, and special effects and lighting.

“AirTran Airways is so proud of our long partnership with Georgia Aquarium,” said Bob Fornaro, AirTran Airways’ chairman, president and CEO. “We are excited to add Dolphin 1 to the AirTran fleet and look forward to helping raise awareness of this world-class destination in our largest hub city.”
