Air Transat is now partnering with easyJet and its Worldwide by easyJet connections service.
This web platform now distributes Air Transat flights, allowing Air Transat customers flying through London Gatwick Airport to increase the number of destinations available in Europe and Africa on the wings of easyJet.
“London Gatwick has been a European mainstay for Air Transat for 30 years, with daily direct flights from Toronto as well as departures from major Canadian cities such as Vancouver, Calgary and Montreal. Moreover, it serves as one of easyJet’s main airports,” said Annick Guérard, chief operating officer at Transat. “This agreement reinforces the importance of London Gatwick for Air Transat… It makes us even more versatile, as we open up a range of new destinations in Europe and North Africa to our clientele.”
Johan Lundgren, easyJet chief executive officer, commented, “We are really pleased to welcome Air Transat to ‘Worldwide by easyJet’ and are confident their addition to Worldwide will be very popular with our customers.
“We have been delighted with the appetite of partner airports and airlines to expand Worldwide across our network and continue to broaden our focus to launch more airline partners and add connectivity to more of our biggest airports. Tens of millions of connecting passengers travel each year with journeys which begin or end in Europe.”
Passengers also benefit from GatwickConnects, a service offered by London Gatwick Airport, that offers flight protection between Air Transat and easyJet, for passenger’s peace of mind. The service simplifies baggage handling as well, with the GatwickConnects counter in the baggage reclaim area, where passengers can check in their bags and pick up their boarding pass for their next flight, making connections much quicker.
