Carrier Launches Non-stop Flights between Montreal And New Orleans
Air Transat is adding New Orleans, Louisiana, to its portfolio of fall and winter destinations.
Beginning in November 2019, the airline will offer two direct flights a week from Montreal, giving travellers a chance to experience the festive atmosphere of jazz clubs or a contemplative stroll along the Bayou.
Annick Guérard, chief operating officer, Transat, said that: “With the steady demand for New Orleans, Air Transat is pleased to be the only airline to offer non-stop service from Montreal to this unique vacation destination, and to be enhancing its offering for next winter with this distinctive option.”
Guérard also pointed out that: “Adding this new route strengthens Air Transat’s status as a Canadian leader in leisure travel while also providing greater flexibility to business travellers visiting Louisiana, who will have the option of extending their stay.”
Kevin Dolliole, aviation director for the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport, said: “We are thrilled to have Air Transat provide this convenient direct connection between New Orleans and Montreal – two great North American cities with rich cultures and shared historical ties to France.”
Dolliole said: “The addition of this new flight brings us to a total of 8 international destinations, which allows us to connect more and more people from around the world to everything New Orleans has to offer.”
Air Transat will fly twice a week to New Orleans, on Thursdays and Sundays, beginning November 3, 2019.
Details of its 2019 winter flight program will be announced shortly.
