Air Transat unveils winter timetable, plans return to year-round UK flights

Air Transat has unveiled its winter 2020/1 timetable with plans to operate from airports across the UK during the season, thus restoring year-round operations.

The leading Canadian leisure airline recommenced flights from London Gatwick, Manchester and Glasgow to Toronto last month (July 24 / 26) when it restarted operations. It has now confirmed it will continue to offer flights from all three airports during the winter season (from November 1).

All services will be operated by the airline’s new Airbus A321neoLRs – the greenest aircraft in its class and a growing part of Air Transat’s fleet. Having integrated two aircraft into its fleet last month, it plans to add three more by next spring, bringing the total number of this generation of aircraft in its fleet to nine.

Air Transat plans to operate flights to and from more than 40 destinations in the Caribbean, Mexico, Central and South America, the United States, Europe and Canada. To open the door to more international destinations and enable travel throughout Canada, Air Transat will also operate domestic flights between Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver.

To help travellers plan their getaways with peace of mind, Transat is presenting even more flexible options to book, change or cancel a trip, in addition to ensuring a safe experience with its Traveller Care program.

“Even though the entire tourism industry has been disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, the desire to go abroad for a change of scenery and for new discoveries is still very much alive in travellers,” said Annick Guérard, chief operating officer of Transat.

Subject to changes in demand and travel restrictions, Air Transat may have to modify its flight schedule. However, to reassure its travellers, it is offering them even more flexible booking options.

That is why it is extending its Book with peace of mind offer, applicable to all new flight bookings, until August 31 2020. This offer allows passengers to change their travel dates or destination, or both, at no charge up to 24 hours before departure. In the event of a cancellation, they will obtain a travel credit that will be fully transferable and have no expiry date.
