Transat Opens The Door to Central Europe


Transat is getting set to kick off the summer season with its most comprehensive and diversified program yet, especially for travellers looking to discover Central Europe.

Following the success of its flights to the Czech Republic and Hungary, two new destinations added in 2014 and 2015 respectively, Transat has added Croatia to its 2016 program.

“We are proud to be the only North American airline offering a direct flight to Croatia, and are committed to enhancing our destination lineup each year with attractive new options that set us apart,” said Annick Guérard, president and general manager of Transat Tours Canada. “Vacationers who wish to discover the splendour of Europe for the first time or return to explore new horizons will be charmed by Hungary, Croatia and the Czech Republic, three of-the-moment destinations. Travellers will be spoiled for choice with the vast selection of packages, guided tours and à la carte travel options.”

Direct flights to Prague take off from Montreal on Mondays and from Toronto on Wednesdays. From Toronto, flights to Zagreb and Budapest operate on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, respectively, and are available from Montreal via connecting flight. Travellers from Vancouver can also visit Prague and Budapest, thanks to connecting flights in Toronto on Wednesdays.

Air Transat also offers a multi-destination flight option, making it possible to land in one city and return from another at no extra cost. This advantage multiplies the itinerary possibilities and lets travellers combine several destinations without having to backtrack. A holiday in Prague can therefore be combined with a gourmet getaway to the bakeries of Budapest, or even the natural riches of Plitvice Lakes National Park outside of Zagreb, or vice-versa.
