Air Transat has unveiled its 2020 summer flight program for Ontario, featuring 95 direct flights a week from Toronto to Europe, the South and the United States – and a new direct flight to Faro, Portugal.
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 destinations are also a big draw in the summer. 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.
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.
Domestically, each week there will be 16 departures from Toronto to Montreal, 12 to Vancouver and four to Calgary.
