Four new Airbus A321XLR aircraft on the way for Air Transat

Air Transat is World’s Best Leisure Airline for fourth straight year

MONTREAL — It’s four wins in a row for Air Transat, which has once again taken the title of Best Leisure Airline at the Skytrax World Airline Awards for the fourth consecutive year.

The win, says Annick Guérard, President and Chief Executive Officer at Transat, is even more significant this year, considering the hardships the travel industry has been through due to the pandemic.

“Knowing that the Air Transat experience still holds a place in the hearts of travellers fills me with pride and ambition for the future,” says Guérard. “But above all, this award solidifies the professionalism and dedication of our employees who make our star shine every day and whom I thank warmly.”

Edward Plaisted, Chief Executive Officer at Skytrax, added: “Air Transat’s achievement of being named the World’s Best Leisure Airline for the fourth time is remarkable. It is great recognition for all Air Transat frontline staff who are clearly delivering great customer satisfaction.”

Other notable offerings that Air Transat is known for include its exclusive Club Class, its inviting Economy Class, a Kids Club that was created especially for travellers ages 2-11, as well as Option Plus, which upgrades travellers to an enhanced experience onboard.

Air Transat will be serving Canada, the United States, Europe and the South in the coming months with a new-generation fleet made up of the greenest aircraft in their category, the Airbus A321neoLR. This winter, it will fly to nearly 50 destinations starting Nov. 1, including newly added Miami and Fort Myers.
