Air Transat Now Serving Marseille Year Round

For the second time this year, Air Transat is expanding its operations in the French market, most notably on two exclusive direct routes departing from Montreal. Following the annualization of its service to Lyon announced earlier this winter, the airline is also adding Marseille and the region of Provence to its roster of year-round destinations.

In addition, the non-stop service to Nantes will also be extended. Flights that initially ended in the fall will now be operated until Jan. 24, 2024, in order to offer travellers more flexibility when travelling to western France.

Michèle Barre, Air Transat’s Chief Revenue Officer, explained that: “Annualizing key routes of our flight network is at the core of our strategy, which is facilitated by the agility of our Airbus A321LR fleet. In the fall of 2022, we extended our service to Marseille until the end of the year for the very first time. Given the success of this initiative, we are delighted to repeat the experience, this time to Nantes.”

Barre added: “The demand for the French provinces is skyrocketing; as the leading carrier between Quebec and France, we are happy to offer our world-class in-flight experience to an expanding clientele.”

Air Transat is the only airline to offer direct flights from Canada to the airports of Marseille and Nantes. A total of seven French cities will be served non-stop this year, including three on a year-round schedule, namely Paris, Lyon, and now Marseille.
