Air Transat Launches Montreal-Amsterdam Route

Air Transat has launched direct service between Montreal and Amsterdam that will operate until mid-October with three flights per week at the height of the season: on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

With this service, the airline is responding to the significant demand from travellers who want to discover Europe this summer and strengthening its fast-growing transatlantic operations.

Joseph Adamo, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, Transat, said: “We are very excited to provide our customers with easy access to another jewel of European culture. Amsterdam joins 18 other destinations to explore from Montreal.”

Adamo continued: “The Netherlands is a fascinating destination, both steeped in history and forward-looking, and known for its efforts to be environmentally responsible. Air Transat highlights this experience with the Airbus A321neoLR, the greenest aircraft in its class.”

Air Transat will be using the Airbus A321neoLR for the new service. The new generation aircraft is 15% more fuel efficient, 50% less noisy and lowers emissions of the greenhouse gas NOx by half compared to previous-generation aircraft. In addition, its modern cabin provides more personal space and larger individual entertainment screens in both Economy and Club Class.
