This includes a new direct flight to Faro, Portugal—a first in the summertime.

Air Transat's new program features 14 weekly flights to London (England), up from nine flights a week in summer 2019. There will be five direct flights a week to Manchester (England), Dublin (Ireland), Glasgow (Scotland) and Paris (France). Options will also abound for Italy, with seven direct flights a week to Rome, two to Venice and one to Lamezia. 

Travellers will find eight weekly departures for Portugal: four to Lisbon, three to Porto and, for the first time in summer, a direct flight to Faro, in the Algarve. Finally, Air Transat will fly direct three times a week to Barcelona (Spain), Zagreb (Croatia) and Athens (Greece), and four times to Amsterdam (Netherlands).

Sunny south

Air Transat will offer a total of 30 weekly flights from Toronto to eight south destinations: six direct flights a week to Cancun (Mexico); four direct flights to Varadero, three to Cayo Coco and Santa Clara and two to Holguin (Cuba); two direct flights to Montego Bay (Jamaica); as well as one direct flight to Puerto Plata and five to Punta Cana (Dominican Republic). 

During peak season, travellers will also find two direct flights a week to Fort Lauderdale and Orlando (United States).

From Montreal

Air Transat has also increased its number of flights from Toronto to Europe with connecting flights through Montreal to Basel-Mulhouse (Switzerland), Bordeaux (France), Brussels (Belgium), Lyon (France), Madrid (Spain), Malaga (Spain), Marseille (France), Nantes (France), Nice (France)Prague (Czech Republic) and Toulouse (France).

New to the roster: Air Transat will be flying twice a week to Copenhagen, the Danish capital, from Montreal.

Domestic flights to explore Canada

Each week, there will be 16 departures from Toronto to Montreal, 12 to Vancouver and four to Calgary.

Last year marked the arrival of Air Transat's first Airbus A321neoLRs. Combining these aircraft with Air Transat's wide‑body fleet gives the airline a great deal of flexibility. It means more flights to Europe, the South and the United States, in addition to connecting flights from major Canadian airports.
