Montreal, February 15, 2017 – Air Transat is unveiling today the first of its 30th anniversary aircraft displaying the recently introduced anniversary logo that highlights the company’s 30-year history and the Transat group’s star emblem.
The special livery will be displayed on three of the carrier’s Airbus A330-300 aircraft, which fly Montréal–Paris and Toronto–London routes, and also serve Punta Cana and Cancun.
To highlight how far it has come and to celebrate the future, the company has a variety of surprises and special activities planned throughout the year for vacationers, for its partners (including travel agencies), and for its 5,000 employees in North America and Europe. They include the launch last week of a 30th anniversary video, which will begin screening on board all Air Transat aircraft in the next few days.
