Air Transat, the Canadian holiday airline, is to introduce flights on 23 July from Gatwick to Toronto (three times weekly), Manchester (twice weekly) and Glasgow (twice weekly).
It will also operate from Toronto to Athens (Greece), Porto (Portugal) and Rome (Italy). In addition, Transat unveiled its Traveller Care programme, rolling out new health measures to ensure the safety of its customers and employees.
“After these long months that put the entire tourism industry to the test, we are very happy to announce today the resumption of our operations,” says Annick Guérard, Chief Operating Officer of Air Transat. “We will gradually operate a flight schedule with 23 international routes to Europe, the United States and South America, in addition to a domestic flight schedule between major Canadian cities.
Passengers will receive a complimentary Traveller Care kit (including a face covering, gloves, hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes). Passengers and crew will be required to wear face coverings throughout the flight. And the inflight service will be revised to reduce handling and contact.
