„Donovan is a terrific addition to the AirTran Airways lineup,“ said Tad Hutcheson, AirTran Airways‘ vice president of marketing and sales. „Both AirTran Airways and McNabb possess the spirit and determination to overcome all obstacles. He’s a quality individual who accounts for almost as many Philadelphia touchdowns as our airline does, and we’re thrilled to have him on our side.“ Other professional football standouts on the AirTran Airways team include Peyton Manning, Warrick Dunn, Keith Brooking, Brian Finneran, and Steve McNair.

A five-time Pro Bowler, he founded the Donovan McNabb Foundation to raise awareness of diabetes and the devastating effects of the disease. More information is available at
