Air Transat has released details of its Summer 2022 flight program, which will see the carrier operating over 250 flights weekly to 44 destinations at the height of the season.
The airline says that it will gradually increase its service to Europe, strengthen its position in the United States by offering flights to Los Angeles and San Francisco for the first time, as well as offering a selection of its most popular South destinations, and enhancing its domestic flight program.
Annick Guérard, President and Chief Executive Officer, Transat, said: “We are actively rebuilding our network with a modern and versatile fleet that will enable us to meet the increased demand expected in 2022. We will be returning to almost all of the destinations served before the pandemic, in addition to offering Canadian travellers major new destinations.”
From Montreal, the airline will offer 7 direct flights weekly to London-Gatwick and 14 to Paris. It also plans to restart operations to the French provinces, with service to Bordeaux, Lyon, Marseille, Nantes, Nice and Toulouse. A total of 19 European destinations will be accessible via direct service from Montreal, including a new route to Amsterdam.
Air Transat will also strengthen its position as the leading international carrier departing from Jean Lesage Airport in Quebec City by offering exclusive non-stop flights to two European capitals: Paris and, for the first time, London.
From Toronto, in addition to 14 weekly flights to London, travellers will also be able to fly to 13 other key European destinations in Croatia, France, Greece, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and the U.K.
From Montreal, Air Transat will introduce a new direct service to California with two flights a week to San Francisco and three to Los Angeles. It will also intensify its service to Florida by operating flights between Montreal and Miami throughout the year, in addition to flying to Fort Lauderdale and Orlando from both Montreal and Toronto.
Finally, travellers from Quebec City will now be able to enjoy direct flights to Fort Lauderdale year-round.
Because Canadians are fond of South getaways even during the summer, Air Transat will offer a selection of its most popular destinations in Mexico and the Caribbean out of Montreal, Quebec City and Toronto.
By closely observing the market and emerging travel trends, Air Transat is convinced that the popularity of travel within Canada will still be strong in the summer of 2022, which is why it will continue to enhance its domestic flight program.
These flights will also provide many Canadians with access to international destinations via connections in Toronto and Montreal.
