Air Transat announced today the relaunch of a significant number of its routes for the summer season. In particular, the company is consolidating its position in the transatlantic market and continuing to develop its services in the United States, in addition to offering flights to the South and within Canada. At the height of the summer season, it will operate more than 250 direct weekly flights on 69 direct routes.
“The numbers tell us clearly that with the gradual lifting of travel restrictions worldwide, people are more ready than ever to plan their next trip, whether to Europe, the U.S., Canada or to South destinations,” said Joseph Adamo, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, Transat. He continued: “The outlook for the summer season is favorable, and our abundant air offering, which includes the vast majority of our pre-pandemic destinations as well as exciting new routes, is enabling us to respond to the significant pent-up demand. This surge in demand has also allowed us to increase capacity on certain key routes between now and the end of the winter season.”
Expanded service to Europe starting in April
From Montreal and starting in April, Air Transat will gradually resume its direct flights to 16 European destinations including, for the first time, Amsterdam. Customers will once again be able to travel non-stop to Athens, Basel-Mulhouse, Barcelona, Brussels, London, Madrid, Porto, Rome and Venice, as well as to the French provinces, including Bordeaux, Lyon, Marseille, Nantes, Nice and Toulouse. In addition, the airline currently offers flights to Malaga and Lisbon, as well as a daily service to Paris, which will increase to up to 14 flights per week during the summer.
From Quebec City, Air Transat will be the only airline to offer non-stop service to two European capitals: first, to Paris starting in early April and, for the very first time and exclusively, to London in May.
From Toronto, Air Transat will serve 15 European cities this summer. Flights to Amsterdam, Athens, Barcelona, Dublin, Lamezia, Paris, Rome, Venice and Zagreb will once again be offered, in addition to the flights currently operated to Glasgow, Lisbon, London, Manchester and Porto. Furthermore, due to sustained demand for southern Portugal, Air Transat will now fly to Faro year-round.

Air Transat will land in California for the first time in its history, serving both San Francisco and Los Angeles from Montreal. And given the unfaltering popularity of Florida, the airline will be operating several of its flights year-round; namely, flights from Montreal to Fort Lauderdale and Miami, from Quebec City to Fort Lauderdale, and from Toronto to Fort Lauderdale and Orlando, will now be offered throughout the year.

Interest in domestic flights is not fading and all indications are that travel within Canada will still be popular this summer. That is why Air Transat will offer an enhanced flight program between Montreal, Toronto, Quebec City, Calgary and Vancouver.
These flights will also provide many Canadians access to international flights via connections in Toronto and Montreal.

Because Canadians remain fond of the South even during the summer season, Air Transat will offer a wide selection of its most popular destinations in Mexico and the Caribbean from Montreal, Quebec City and Toronto.
