Air Transat unveils its ambitious 2024 summer program from Toronto

MONTREAL, Oct. 5, 2023 – Air Transat, voted World’s Best Leisure Airline at the 2023 Skytrax World Airline Awards, has just unveiled its 2024 summer flight program from Toronto. In their news release Air Transat says the schedule reflects a significant recovery, particularly in the key markets of Europe and the South. At the peak of the season, the airline will offer 110 weekly direct flights, serving more than 25 destinations. Newly added direct flights from Toronto to Lima in Peru will now be offered year-round.

“By adding key destinations, strengthening our frequency of flights to promising markets, expanding our presence in Europe and the South, and reducing the seasonality of our operations, we are well positioned to maximize our revenues and develop our market share in Ontario,” says Michèle Barre, Transat’s Chief Revenue Officer. “We are committed to continuing our growth and investing in the quality of our in-flight service, for which we have been renowned for more than 35 years.”

Greater presence on the Old Continent

Air Transat continues to improve its offering on the European market by increasing the frequency of its flights to England, Croatia, Ireland, Italy and Portugal throughout the season, in order to offer its customers greater travel flexibility.
