Air Transat voted Best North American Leisure Airline five years running

MONTREAL — For the fifth consecutive year Air Transat has been voted Best North American Leisure Airline at the Skytrax World Airline Awards.

“We are extremely honoured to receive this international award for the fifth year in a row,” said Jean-François Lemay, President and General Manager, Air Transat. “Air Transat particularly stands out for its specially tailored passenger experience. Our attentive crew, cabin comfort, Option Plus and Club Class upgrades, and little extras for families like priority check-in and boarding, as well as the Kids Club to keep youngsters busy, help get the vacation started before even arriving at the destination.”

The World Airline Awards began in 1999 when Skytrax launched its first global, airline passenger satisfaction survey. The survey collects travellers’ opinions on 280 airlines over a 10-month period and in 160 countries. Airlines are ranked according to 40 criteria, from check-in and boarding to staff service and seat comfort. This year’s survey polled more than 19 million passengers worldwide.
