MONTREAL — Air Transat is gradually resuming its flights to France, starting today with the departure of its first direct flight from Montreal to Marseille.
“These routes — most of which we operate exclusively — have been an integral part of our flight program for many years,” says Joseph Adamo, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, Transat.
Adamo added: “The ties between Canada and France are very valuable and as our global recovery picks up speed, we look forward to meeting the significant latent demand. We know that whether travellers are going on vacation or catching up with loved ones, they really appreciate the ease of flying direct to their final destination, especially on our next generation aircraft.”
Six destinations in France will be available once more to Quebec travellers in the coming weeks, from Brittany to Provence, Aquitaine and Auvergne.
Transat will also increase flight frequencies between Montreal and Paris, up to 14 flights per week in May. Transat will soon relaunch its service to Paris from Toronto (May 3) and Quebec City (April 10).
From Montreal, Air Transat will gradually start flying back to Bordeaux, Lyon, Marseille, Nantes, Nice and Toulouse by early May.
At the height of the summer season, Transat will operate a total of 43 weekly flights to France from Montreal, Quebec City and Toronto.
For a limited time, Transat passengers booking flights on Eco Budget, Eco Standard or Club Standard fares will benefit from additional flexibility. They can change their travel dates and/or destination at no cost up to 24 hours before departure and simply pay the fare difference, if any.
Customers looking for maximum flexibility can opt for Eco Flex and Club Flex fares, which will allow them to make changes to their booking free of charge and obtain a refund in case of cancellation, regardless of the circumstances.
