Air Transat Revamps Eco Fares

Air Transat has revamped its Eco Fares.

The Eco Fares – Eco, Eco Extra and Eco Max – created in 2014, are designed to offer flexibility to passengers booking flights in Economy Class, providing peace of mind.

Among the main improvements to the Eco Fares is the inclusion of standard seat selection in Eco Extra and Eco Max. Eco Max also boasts new benefits, such as an additional piece of checked baggage and priority airport services.

In addition, change or cancellation fees have also been revised for some fares. Passengers who book an Eco Max will now pay half as much for cancelling a flight to or from Europe – that is, $50 instead of $100. The Eco Fares offer varying conditions, allowing passengers to modify their travel dates or cancel a flight if necessary.

“Since their launch, Eco Fares have been very popular with our passengers, who can choose the level of flexibility that’s right for them,” says Annick Guérard, chief operating officer of Transat. “That’s why we wanted to improve this offer, particularly by modifying certain fees and offering even more benefits. Each traveller is unique, and the new and improved Eco Fares will more accurately respond to their specific needs.”

While Eco Fares offer passengers flexibility when booking a flight, Air Transat boasts other options designed to provide the best on-board experience possible. Its Club Class combines personalized service with flexibility. It offers more space on board, in addition to complimentary seat selection, a generous baggage allowance and priority check-in, boarding and baggage handling.

On board, more perks await Club Class passengers, such as an exclusive Comfort Kit, a welcome cocktail, a selection of wines, beverages and snacks, as well as meals, including gourmet dishes from the Chef’s Menu by Daniel Vézina.

And lastly, passengers who choose Option Plus will be treated to more benefits in Economy Class, such as seat selection, priority check-in at a dedicated counter, additional checked baggage allowance, priority boarding and baggage handling, as well as special on-board perks for optimal comfort.
