If completed, the merged airline must increase seat capacity by at least 50% in both Fort Lauderdale and Orlando airports and must increase aggregate seat capacity at all other Florida airports in which either currently operate by at least 50%, Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody said, adding the “commitments will bring hundreds of new daily flights to Florida.”
