The airline offers direct flights to Canada from Brussels (to Montreal), Amsterdam (to Toronto and Montreal) and Paris (to Montreal, Quebec and Toronto) as well as numerous connecting flights to other Canadian cities.
"This autumn marks the 35th anniversary of Air Transat's first flight. We are proud of our history and we are proud of what we have achieved in Europe over the past 35 years. We will continue to develop our business, not only to Canada but also to other destinations thanks to new connecting flights in Montreal. In this way, we aim to meet passengers' expectations even better, today and in the future. I would like to thank all our passengers for their unwavering support and trust over the past 35 years. We look forward to continuing this journey with them. On to the next 35 years!" says Cyril Cousin, Air Transat's Managing Director for France, Benelux, Switzerland and Germany.
