Air Transat’s brand new ad campaign comes with a powerful tagline: Travel Moves Us

MONTREAL — Air Transat has unveiled new brand positioning complete with a new tagline: Travel Moves Us.

The campaign is being rolled out in two stages, first with TV, outdoor and digital activations in the Quebec and Ontario markets, and then later in international markets.

Air Transat says the evolution of its branding marks a turning point in the history of Air Transat and builds on more than 35 years of experience. It draws its key elements from the same DNA that has enabled it to position itself as a globally recognized brand for its openness, friendliness, and expertise, notes Joseph Adamo, Transat’s Chief Sales and Marketing Officer.

“We have been primarily known for our South packages and transatlantic flights, and we are now putting forward our culture and expertise regardless of the destination or nature of the trip,” says Adamo. “With Travel Moves Us, Air Transat actively encourages travellers to open up to the world, no matter the reason of their departure.”

Air Transat flies to some 60 destinations in Europe, the Caribbean, the U.S. and Canada, and offers 265+ additional destinations through partnerships with other carriers.

The new brand positioning and tagline were developed in collaboration with creative agency Sid Lee. New ads follows three protagonists, each of whom is on a transformative journey through new places, new experiences and new outlooks.

Brian Gill, Creative Director, Sid Lee, says: “The campaign is about how travel makes us more open. We all have apprehensions about change. We wanted to address this truth and speak to how meeting new people and experiencing new places and cultures bring us closer and make us more empathetic towards one another. It’s about the joys of travel, including the challenges it poses – challenges that ultimately make travel one of the most rewarding experiences of all.”

Maria Pagano, Senior Director, Brand and Customer Experience, Transat, adds: “Our strategy is rooted in the expression of a strong, assertive brand identity, along with an authentic positioning that is supported by a corporate culture with a 35-year history. That authenticity is reflected in the creative choices we’ve made for our campaign, which features characters who resemble our customers and the experiences they share with us every time they fly with us. The Travel Moves Us signature underscores that strong connection, which is both an inspiration for our travellers and the collective credo that unites Air Transat’s staff.”

Directing duties for the film were entrusted to Caraz (a two-time Gold Young Director Awards winner), while Air Transat commissioned Montreal group NOBRO for the bilingual soundtrack, featuring the song ‘Better Each Day’, a tune chosen for its vibrancy and energy.
