Montreal, October 24, 2011
Transat, one of the largest integrated tourism companies in the world and Canada’s holiday travel leader, is thrilled with the response it has received from area residents and travel agents following the introduction of non-stop service from Sault Ste. Marie to Punta Cana. Included in vacation packages sold by both Transat Holidays and Nolitours, direct flights will operate every Tuesday, from December 20, 2011 to April 3, 2012. Travellers will no longer need to fly out of another city, and more consumers can now take advantage of the many options available through Transat Holidays and Nolitours. Transat is extremely satisfied with sales to date for the upcoming winter season.
A Winter Favourite
Punta Cana is among the most popular winter destinations for Canadians and is known worldwide for its endless white-sand beaches, lagoons and variety of water sports practiced along the coral coasts. Its vast sun-kissed landscapes favour visits to typical villages and horseback riding through sugar cane plantations. Transat’s long-term presence in the country has enabled the company to secure contracts with 43 hotels of all categories. Excursions can also be booked on site or prior to departure through Transat Holidays and Nolitours.
“This season’s new concepts place Transat Holidays and Nolitours in a class of their own. We’ve listened to our clients, and our mission remains the same: to offer high-quality products that meet the needs of travellers. Our program is constantly improving, and we are gaining the attention of Canadians with our range of superior vacation products and flexible flight programs. These efforts appear to be paying off, and our winter season out of Sault Ste. Marie is full of promise”, said Denise Heffron, Vice President, National Sales and Commercial.
Nolitours offers its customers across Canada a wide variety of competitively priced holiday packages available year-round, for sun destinations in the Caribbean, Mexico and Central and South America.
