Air Transat getting ready to relaunch summer routes for 2022

MONTREAL — Air Transat is set to gradually restart flights to a total of 25 European destinations starting next month.

Currently the airline serves six routes to Europe. At the height of the 2022 season, Air Transat will operate more than 250 direct flights weekly on 69 direct routes.

Joseph Adamo, Transat’s Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, says the company is consolidating its position in the transatlantic market and continuing to develop its services in the U.S., in addition to offering flights to the South and within Canada.

“The numbers tell us clearly that with the gradual lifting of travel restrictions worldwide, people are more ready than ever to plan their next trip, whether to Europe, the U.S., Canada or to South destinations,” says Adamo.

“The outlook for the summer season is favourable, and our abundant air offering, which includes the vast majority of our pre-pandemic destinations as well as exciting new routes, is enabling us to respond to the significant pent-up demand. This surge in demand has also allowed us to increase capacity on certain key routes between now and the end of the winter season,” he added.



From Toronto, Air Transat will serve 15 European cities for summer 2022. Flights to Amsterdam, Athens, Barcelona, Dublin, Lamezia, Paris, Rome, Venice and Zagreb will once again be on the schedule, in addition to the flights currently operated to Glasgow, Lisbon, London, Manchester and Porto. Furthermore, due to sustained demand for southern Portugal, Air Transat will now fly to Faro year-round.

From Montreal and starting in April, Air Transat will gradually resume its direct flights to 16 European destinations including, for the first time, Amsterdam. Customers will once again be able to travel nonstop to Athens, Basel-Mulhouse, Barcelona, Brussels, London, Madrid, Porto, Rome and Venice, as well as to the French provinces, including Bordeaux, Lyon, Marseille, Nantes, Nice and Toulouse. In addition, the airline currently offers flights to Malaga and Lisbon, as well as a daily service to Paris, which will increase to up to 14 flights per week during the summer.

From Quebec City, Air Transat will be the only airline to offer non-stop service to two European capitals: first, to Paris starting in early April and, for the very first time and exclusively, to London in May.

Even after two years of mostly domestic travel, many Canadians haven’t yet had their fill of Canada, and all indications are that travel within Canada will still be popular for summer 2022, according to Air Transat. The airline will offer an enhanced flight program between Montreal, Toronto, Quebec City, Calgary and Vancouver.

Air Transat also notes that these flights will provide many Canadians access to international flights via connections in Toronto and Montreal.
