Air Transat unveiled its flight program for winter 2018–2019, offering travellers a choice of 34 Sun destinations in the Caribbean, Puerto Vallarta Mexico, Central and South America as well as Florida, along with an even more diversified selection of European cities, which are increasingly appreciated by Canadians during the winter season. Air Transat, the leading leisure carrier in Canada, is also pleased to announce the return of flights from Toronto and Montreal to Saint-Martin/St-Maarten and San Juan, Puerto Rico, both of which are embarkation ports for Transat’s all-in-one cruise packages
Mexico, the Dominican Republic and Florida remain Canadians’ top picks
More than ever, Air Transat is there for Canadian vacationers looking to escape to their favourite trio of destinations, with an increase in the number of its direct flights and new travel opportunities via Toronto. Extra flights to Cancún, Mexico, will be added, departing from Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Toronto, Hamilton, Montreal and Quebec City. Vancouver residents will enjoy daily connections to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, and more flights to the Pacific resort destination will be available to holidayers in and around Edmonton.
“As the Canadian leader in holiday travel, Air Transat continually strives to offer travellers more destinations and more flexibility, which is why we are significantly boosting frequency on our domestic routes, the vast majority of which will allow travellers to make connections to a larger number of South and Europe destinations,” says Annick Guérard, Chief Operating Officer, Transat. “Winter 2018–2019 also marks the start of a transitional period in our operations, namely our fleet upgrades, which will see us introduce gradually this winter the shorter-range Airbus A321s, and then later, in May 2019, the newer A321neo LR. Once completed, these changes will mean an even better-performing Air Transat fleet, thanks notably to this aircraft’s great versatility and the impressive flexibility that it offers in terms of flight frequency,” she concludes.

It flies to some 60 destinations in the Americas, Europe and the Middle East, offers domestic and feeder flights within Canada, and carries nearly 4.5 million passengers every year.
