Air Transat adds another A330 and that means more direct Europe flights next summer

MONTREAL — Air Transat is expanding its summer 2018 Europe program with more direct flights to destinations in France, Spain, Portugal, Ireland and Israel, thanks to the addition of a new Airbus A330 to its fleet, says Annick Guérard, President and General Manager of Transat Tours Canada.

“The addition of this aircraft next summer allows us to strengthen our presence in key destinations in Europe,” says Guérard. “Furthermore, Air Transat was the first airline to offer a direct flight between Montreal and Tel Aviv, and we are pleased to add a third flight a week next summer.

“With this enhanced flight program, Air Transat cements its position as a leader in Canada on the transatlantic market, offering 28 European and Middle Eastern destinations from many Canadian gateways thanks to direct and connecting flights.”

Air Transat is consolidating its program by adding direct flights from Montreal to Paris (for a total of 13 flights a week), Toulouse (for a total of four flights a week), Bordeaux (for a total of three flights a week) and Nantes (for a total of three flights a week).

Inaugurated as an Air Transat destination in the summer of 2017, Tel Aviv has been “a great success” with travellers, says the company. The airline will be offering it three times a week from Montreal as of next summer.

Air Transat is also offering direct flights to Spain and Portugal in summer 2018, with three flights a week to both Madrid and Malaga, and five flights a week to Lisbon.

Dublin will be served out of Toronto with five direct flights a week.

Air Transat’s feeder flights program, introduced three years ago, is being maintained, making a wider choice of Europe destinations available to travellers from across Canada.

  • Six flights a week between Montreal and Toronto;
  • Six flights a week between Vancouver and Toronto;
  • Five flights a week between Calgary and Toronto;
  • Four flights a week between Vancouver and Montreal;
  • Two flights a week between Quebec City and Montreal.
