MONTREAL — Air Transat has announced four new routes for its 2022 summer program, with particular focus on popular destinations in the United States.
For the first time ever, the airline will be serving the San Francisco, Los Angeles and Amsterdam airports from Montreal. It will also offer an exclusive direct flight between Quebec City and London, and will operate routes to Fort Lauderdale and Miami year-round.
“By analyzing travel trends, it’s clear that the United States is still one of the top destinations for Quebecers and Canadians in the wake of the pandemic,” says Annick Guérard, President and Chief Executive Officer at Transat. “Thanks to the versatility of our world-class fleet, we are perfectly positioned to meet this demand and quickly adapt to our passengers’ needs, which is why our service south of the border will be expanding starting in 2022.”
Air Transat is enhancing its U.S. flight program with the addition of California. The Montreal-San Francisco flight will operate twice weekly, while Montreal-Los Angeles will run 3x/week.
Due to ongoing demand for Florida, certain routes that were previously available only in winter will now be offered throughout the year. During summer, Montreal-Miami will operate 3x/week while the Quebec City-Fort Lauderdale flight will run once weekly.
The airline is expanding its service to Europe with the addition of direct service for two segments: the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. This will make Air Transat the only Canadian airline to fly direct from Montreal to the Dutch capital.
Montreal-Amsterdam will run 3x/week while Quebec City-London will run once weekly.
