Transat cancels Nicaragua program in wake of civil unrest

MONTREAL — Transat has confirmed that it is cancelling its Nicaragua flights in light of civil unrest in the country.

The company was set to offer Nicaragua as part of its 2018/2019 winter Sun lineup, with flights out of Toronto and Montreal to Managua.

“We initially scheduled two flights a week out of Toronto and once a week out of Montreal from Dec. 20 to the end of March,” says Transat spokesperson Debbie Cabana.

“As a result of the ongoing civil unrest and the subsequent weak demand, we have decided to remove the flights to Managua, Nicaragua from our 2018-2019 winter program.”

She adds that clients who had booked flights to this destination may modify their booking or obtain a full refund.
