Air Transat, always the vacation champion

Montreal, January 14, 2019 – Air Transat, named the 2018 World’s Best Leisure Airline at the Skytrax World Airline Awards, knows how important vacations are.

And the carrier, whose mission is to brighten the everyday with the joy of the vacations, once again reminds Canadians of how precious this time away is, with a new video and a promotion.

“It’s the New Year, a time when we make resolutions and think about what matters most to us. So we wanted to help a group of employees realize what vacations really mean to them,” explains Geneviève LeBrun, Vice-President of Marketing at Transat. “We understand the transformative power a holiday can have, and that’s the message we’re conveying in this video.”

See the video that shows how Air Transat, in collusion with a false human resources advisor, has put in place a rather unusual holiday policy, creating a surprise among a group of workers.

The Vacation Resolution Sale

Short on resolution for 2019? So why not take one to bask in the sunshine of the Caribbean, Central and South America, Mexico or Florida? This is what Transat is encouraging Canadians to do by offering them discounts of up to 40% on its Southern packages, for all bookings made by January 22, 2019.
