Any time a country or region imposes any sort of visa stipulation - even if it’s a waiver - the travel industry sighs a collective groan, knowing the obstacles and headaches to come.
QUEBEC CITY — After spending over 20 years at Transat, Jean-Luc Tremblay is heading to Air Canada Vacations to be its new Area Sales Manager – Quebec.
Reporting directly to David Côté, General Manager Sales Quebec & Atlantic, Tremblay will be based in Quebec City where he will represent the city along with the East of Quebec region. He joins ACV’s Quebec Sales team, which comprises Veronica Di Ruocco and Mary-Gina Mercier.
Tremblay brings with him over 20 years of experience at Transat where he recently held the position of Area Sales Manager.
Dana Gain, Senior Director of Sales, Groups & Partnerships at Air Canada Vacations, said the company is delighted to welcome him to the team. “Jean-Luc’s network of relationships and industry experience will allow us to continue supporting the Quebec City region.”
Tremblay is the latest Transat veteran to head to Air Canada Vacations.
Last month ACV named Robert Reed, a former director at Transat, as its new Manager of National Accounts.
On June 27 Air Canada and Transat concluded their definitive Arrangement Agreement that provides for Air Canada’s acquisition of all issued and outstanding shares of Transat and its combination with Air Canada. The deal is pending approval from regulators and shareholders.
