MONTREAL, Feb. 12, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - Air Transat, Canada's leading leisure airline, is proud to introduce new destinations from Vancouver, Quebec City and Halifax. Travellers gain access to more destinations and flight frequencies for their holidays in Europe, thanks to the new flights connecting in Montreal from Quebec City and Halifax, and in Toronto from Vancouver.

Residents of Western Canada can add Dublin, Rome and Barcelona to their vacation options by connecting in Toronto. From Quebec City, additional destinations including Rome, Brussels and Bordeaux will be available when connecting in Montreal. From Halifax, this wider offering includes Rome, Brussels and Paris via domestic flight to Montreal.

From June to September 2015, travellers will be able to choose from more European destinations when it comes time to planning their vacation.
