Air Transat, named the 2018 World’s Best Leisure Airline, is making it easy for Canadians to discover Europe next summer.
The airline is adding Split, Croatia, to its destinations and increasing its direct flights for many of its main transatlantic markets, namely, Italy, Greece, Croatia, France and Portugal.
With 27 destinations in Europe and the Middle East accessible from six airports in Canada via connecting flights, Air Transat makes planning a dream vacation a breeze for Canadians.
Moreover, as of summer 2019, passengers heading to destinations such as Nice, Porto and Basel will fly in one of two new Airbus A321neo LR airplanes being added to its fleet.
“Our fleet’s transition period that started last winter is continuing. Summer 2019 will mark the arrival of two new Airbus A321neo LR airplanes, benefitting our flexibility and efficiency,” said Annick Guérard, chief operating officer at Transat,” she said.
“We’re adding Split in response to Croatia’s soaring popularity as a tourist destination, while maintaining our position as a leader in many of our key markets, including the Mediterranean region.
“While Europe is a huge part of our summer activities, as Canada’s number one holiday airline, we always make sure to offer a wide variety of destinations to our passengers. And that means maintaining our flights to some 20 South destinations, because people love the beaches of Mexico and the Dominican Republic even in the summer.”
A new destination and a bigger footprint in key markets
Given Canadians’ growing interest in the Balkan Peninsula, Air Transat is pleased to be adding Split to its destinations.
With its two flights to Zagreb, that makes three direct flights to Croatia every week from Toronto. There will be more direct flights to Greece and Italy, for a total of four weekly flights to Athens (Greece) from Montreal and Toronto.
Lamezia (Italy), the gateway to the South of Italy, will be accessible twice a week from Toronto.
