Transat adds extra daily nonstop flight to Portugal ex Toronto

MONTREAL — Air Transat is adding another direct Toronto-Lisbon flight to its transatlantic summer program, which will now provide daily nonstop service to Portugal via Lisbon or Porto during high season.

The new flight will be operated from Toronto, and service will also be available from Montreal, Calgary and Vancouver with connecting flights.

“In addition to travelling with the best leisure airline in North America according to Skytrax, Air Transat clients can benefit from flights to two destinations in Portugal: Lisbon and Porto. Our multi-destination option also increases the itinerary possibilities, allowing travellers to land in one city and return from another at no extra charge,” said Annick Guérard, President and General Manager of Transat Tours Canada. “Moreover, travellers will get access to plenty of one-stop packages, as well as à la carte accommodation and car rental services.”

With an Option Plus upgrade, travellers flying to Portugal with Air Transat will also get more privileges and services in Economy Class, such as standard seat selection; priority check-in, boarding and baggage handling; and a supplementary checked baggage allowance of two bags, weighing maximum 23 kg each.

Air Transat’s 2017 transatlantic flight program includes 28 destinations. In addition to its newest destination, Tel Aviv, Transat will also be multiplying its direct flights to France, the UK, Italy, Greece, Spain, Portugal, Ireland and Croatia, while maintaining service to the Netherlands, Switzerland, Belgium and the Czech Republic.
