MONTREAL — This winter will be a good one for Air Transat customers in Vancouver. Thanks to the addition of all-new Airbus A321neoLRs, the carrier will be offering new destinations out of YVR, including Fort Lauderdale, making it the sole company to fly direct between the two cities.
In addition to the Florida hotspot, Air Transat will also be adding departures to Liberia and San Jose in Costa Rica, plus a direct flight to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.
Onboard the new aircraft, customers can enjoy an entirely redesigned cabin interior for an elevated inflight experience. Club Class, with its exclusive cabin and personalized service, has been given a new look complete with 12 deep-blue natural leather seats, wider individual touch screens equipped with USB ports and state-of-the-art entertainment system, and leg rests for maximum comfort.
In Economy Class, the light-blue natural leather seats are wider than those of previous generations of Airbus, and are equipped with larger individual touch screens and USB ports to charge electronic devices.
Another benefit of the Airbus A321neoLR is that it’s in line with Air Transat’s continued sustainability efforts. Its engines have the lowest fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions in their class, plus it generates 50% less noise and produces about 5,000 fewer tonnes of CO2 a year compared to previous generation Airbus aircraft. Moreover, it lowers NOX emissions, which contribute to smog and acid rain.
