Air Transat Takes Off To France, Italy

Air Transat is taking off to France and Italy.

The carrier has announced that it is gradually resuming its operations to France with the recent its first direct flight from Montreal to Marseille.

From Brittany to Provence, Aquitaine and Auvergne, six destinations will be available once more to Quebec travellers in the coming weeks.

In addition to gradually increasing flight frequency between Montreal and the City of Light, the airline will soon be relaunching its service to Paris from Toronto and Quebec City

Joseph Adamo, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, Transat, said: “We are very pleased to resume our flights to France’s regions. These routes—most of which we operate exclusively—have been an integral part of our flight program for many years.”

Adamo continued: “The ties between Canada and France are very valuable and as our global recovery picks up speed, we look forward to meeting the significant latent demand. We know that whether travellers are going on vacation or catching up with loved ones, they really appreciate the ease of flying direct to their final destination, especially on our new generation aircraft.”

From Montreal, Air Transat will gradually start flying back to Bordeaux, Lyon, Marseille, Nantes, Nice and Toulouse by early May. This enhanced flight program to the regions of France is, of course, in addition to the usual daily Paris service from Montreal, which will reach up to 14 flights per week in May.

The carrier has launched service between Montreal and Rome, which will be offered four times a week at the height of the season.

Along with Rome, Air Transat will also be offering service to Venice from Montreal.
