MONTREAL — Come this summer, Air Transat will be offering a total of 95 direct flights a week from Toronto to Europe, the South and the United States.

The leisure airline has announced its 2020 summer flight program for Ontario, which in addition to flights to popular destinations in Europe, the South and the United States, will also include new direct summer service to Faro, Portugal.

Here’s a complete overview of its Ontario summer program:


This summer, Air Transat will fly 14 weekly flights to London, England, up from nine flights a week in summer 2019. There will also be five direct flights a week to Manchester, Dublin, Glasgow and Paris.
