Air Transat teams up with VIA Rail

Air Transat and VIA Rail Canada they have formed an intermodal partnership, enabling travellers to take advantage of both rail and air services when travelling between their home, the airport and their vacation destination. As a result, Air Transat and VIA Rail have streamlined their service schedules to encourage the purchase of tickets combining both modes of transportation. Customers are invited to book both their international flight as well as their train ticket (connecting them to the airport) online. To facilitate the shopping process, a dedicated page has been created on Air Transat’s web site (http://www.airtransat.ca) under the car rental and train travel booking section. The agreement is the latest in a series of measures taken by VIA Rail to modernize Canadian passenger rail. In the last two years, VIA has entered into numerous intermodal partnerships. To celebrate the announcement, a 10% discount will be offered on the best available fare until Oct. 31 for VIA Rail tickets purchased through Air Transat’s site. As well, passengers can take advantage of the free AirConnect shuttle providing easy and quick transfer between VIA’s Dorval station and Montreal’s Pierre-Elliott-Trudeau International Airport.
