The best in the travel industry recognized by the Gala Uni-Vers

Montreal, October 30, 2015 — Transat walked away a winner at the third annual Gala Uni-Vers, held October 22, 2015 at the Rialto Theatre in Montreal, where it was awarded with Tour Operator of the year and Air Transat won for best Airline. Travel professionals, suppliers and media all came out to celebrate the best in the Quebec travel industry at the event organized by the Association des Agents de Voyages du Québec (AAVQ).

“We are extremely proud to have been chosen as the tour operator of the year by travel agents, whom we’d like to thank for their vote of confidence,” said Louise Fecteau, Commercial Director, Quebec, with Transat Tours Canada. “We understand the importance of strong partnerships with agencies and all of our departments, whether it’s sales, bookings or groups, work together with the common objective of helping agencies grow their Transat sales.”

Industry professionals voted on their favourite tour operator from October 1 to 22 while consumers voted on their favourite airline between October 1 and 15 on the AAVQ’s website, following a campaign in La Presse.

In addition to its two big wins, Transat’s Christopher Jeffrey-Racine was also nominated as Sales Representative of the year while Lina de Cesare, a co-founder of Transat, was honored for her exceptional contribution to the travel industry. She is now part of Transat’s Honour Gallery of the Association des Agents de Voyages du Québec.

Transat would sincerely like to thank everyone who voted for them as part of this gala.
