Air Transat raises the bar with fresh eats

Montreal, March 9, 2016 — Air Transat, the leading Canadian leisure airline, is proud to announce a brand new bistro-style meal offer on its transatlantic flights. Starting April 1, the new Euro Bistro menu will be featuring a varied menu of fresh, healthy options available free of charge to Economy Class passengers.

“With a constant drive for innovation and client satisfaction, we’ve consulted thousands of passengers over the past two years to better understand their meal expectations and preferences,” explains Jean-François Lemay, General Manager, Air Transat. “The result is our new Euro Bistro menu, providing more fresh choices than ever to please all tastes.”

The new Euro Bistro menu will feature six meal options on all flights between Europe and Canada, as opposed to the two that are currently available. Economy Class passengers will be able to choose from four hot sandwiches (pulled beef, ham and melted brie, grilled vegetables and smoked meat), a chicken wrap and vegetarian maki sushi. Prepared fresh daily, meals will be served with a delicious dessert and a drink. Bar service and breakfast or a snack will continue to be provided on transatlantic flights. The meal offer remains unchanged for Club Class passengers.

On Air Transat flights between Canada and Sun destinations, affordably priced meals and snacks will still be available.
