New edition of Atmosphere magazine now on board Air Transat flights

Montreal, December 22, 2016 — Air Transat is pleased to offer to its clients the latest issue of Atmosphere magazine, which has been available on its flights as of December 15, 2016. This biannual and bilingual publication informs, entertains and inspires passengers with its stories on captivating destinations. 

The December-June 2016-2017 issue of Atmosphere is all about duality – two opposites melding together to form a complex and fascinating whole. Like in Cartagena, the jewel of Colombia, where the Old Town intersects with idyllic beaches and modern neighbourhoods; or in Nicaragua, the perfect blend of urban jungle and wild nature. Readers are also invited to unravel famous Scottish and Irish legends, and to discover two sides of Canada by tracing the footsteps of the Vikings who landed some 1,000 years ago in Newfoundland, as well as those of the gold prospectors of the 1890s in Yukon. 

The latest issue of Atmosphere, as well as all previous editions, are available online, at
