Voices of Travel


Air Transat has received the Family Friendly Airline Award for a second time. The international award was created in 2011 by the Kids First Fund and is awarded to air carriers that provide additional services and extra comfort to children and their parents. This year, a jury made up of travel industry leaders shortlisted four airlines: Air Transat, El Al Israel Airlines, Iberia and South African Airways. The winner of the Family Friendly Airline Award was then determined by popular vote on the Kids First Fund Facebook page. Thanks to its Kids Club, Air Transat garnered 63% of the votes cast by Facebook members from countries around the world, including Canada, Brazil, France, India and the United States. Jean-Francois Lemay, general manager, Air Transat, said: “We’re extremely proud of this acknowledgement of the services we provide to families who fly with us. Our airline has excelled for 25 years now, and one of our hallmarks is helping to provide unforgettable and worry-free family vacations thanks to, among other things, the Air Transat Kids Club and the quality of service delivery by our staff both in the air and on the ground.”
