MONTREAL — It was smiles all around – albeit beneath face coverings – on Transat’s commercial flights yesterday, its first in over 100 days of inactivity due to COVID-19.
Three international flights (Montreal-Toulouse, Montreal-Paris and Toronto-London) and three domestic flights (Montreal-Toronto, Toronto-Montreal and Toronto-Vancouver) took flight on July 23, the same day Transat resumed air operations after 112 days of air downtime.
Calling it a “very special day in the history of Transat,” Chief Operating Officer Annick Guérard said on-duty flight crews were “very pleased” to return to action. Passengers were greeted by crew who donned face masks to ensure the health and safety of everyone onboard.

Mandatory face coverings for both crew and guests is part of Transat’s Traveller Care program, which includes a wide range of health and safety measures from check-in to destination. These include physical distancing of two metres apart during boarding, a complimentary Traveller Care kit for all passengers, regularly sanitized lavatories and transfer buses that are disinfected after each use.
