More flight news to start off your week, Canada! Air Transat is relaunching a whole bunch of its summer flights, and says it is adding domestic flights as well.
According to the airline, it will operate more than 250 direct weekly flights on 69 direct routes.
“The numbers tell us clearly that with the gradual lifting of travel restrictions worldwide, people are more ready than ever to plan their next trip, whether to Europe, the U.S., Canada or to South destinations,” said Joseph Adamo, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, Transat.
“The outlook for the summer season is favourable, and our abundant air offering, which includes the vast majority of our pre-pandemic destinations as well as exciting new routes, is enabling us to respond to the significant pent-up demand. This surge in demand has also allowed us to increase capacity on certain key routes between now and the end of the winter season.”

Starting in April, Air Transat will resume its direct flights from Montreal to 16 European destinations including, for the first time, Amsterdam. Non-stop flights will be available to Athens, Basel-Mulhouse, Barcelona, Brussels, London, Madrid, Porto, Rome and Venice, as well as to the French provinces, including Bordeaux, Lyon, Marseille, Nantes, Nice and Toulouse. As well, flights to Malaga and Lisbon, and a daily service to Paris, will increase to up to 14 flights per week during the summer.
From Toronto, Air Transat will serve 15 European cities this summer including Amsterdam, Athens, Barcelona, Dublin, Lamezia, Paris, Rome, Venice and Zagreb. As well, due to sustained demand for southern Portugal, Air Transat will now fly to Faro year-round.
The airline also said that interest in domestic flights is not fading and all indications are that travel within Canada will still be popular this summer.
“That is why Air Transat will offer an enhanced flight program between Montreal, Toronto, Quebec City, Calgary and Vancouver,” stated the airline.
“These flights will also provide many Canadians access to international flights via connections in Toronto and Montreal.”
