Air Transat has expanded its programme of flights from the UK to Canada with increased capacity and connections for travel in 2017.

The airline, which next year celebrates 30 years of flying, operates direct year-round services from Gatwick to Toronto and Vancouver, and services to Calgary and Montreal from May to October.

Next year the airline will operate eight direct flights a week to Toronto from Gatwick, along with a direct daily service to Vancouver and three direct flights to Calgary and Montreal respectively.

Passengers from Gatwick will benefit from services to Quebec City via Montreal three times weekly, as well as increased choice when travelling to Calgary and Montreal with five additional flights a week to Calgary via Toronto or Vancouver and four extra weekly services to Montreal via Toronto.

Commenting on the 2017 programme, the company's sales director UK & Ireland, Lesley Kane, said: “Canada is an increasingly popular destination for summer holidays and we’re enhancing our flight programme to reflect this. Our customers are looking to travel when they want with the utmost convenience and to incorporate multiple destinations into their holiday experience. Our 2017 programme caters for that demand with more choice and flexibility of travel.”

The carrier is also increasing capacity for travel to Canada from airports across the UK – including Manchester, Glasgow and Birmingham – with greater use of new, larger A330 aircraft and a range of additional connecting flights.
