Air Transat unveils its 2020 summer flight program for Quebec City

Montreal, February 18, 2020 – Air Transat, named the 2019 World's Best Leisure Airline at the Skytrax World Airline Awards, proudly presents its 2020 summer flight program for Quebec City. In all, the airline will be offering 46 weekly departures from la Vieille Capitale to Europe, the South and the United States. This includes four direct flights to Paris and a new direct flight to Fort Lauderdale.

European destinations still a priority 

Air Transat’s new program features four direct flights a week from Quebec City to Paris, one more than in summer 2019. Plus, the airline will fly between Quebec City and Montreal four times a week. Thus, travellers will enjoy easy access to Athens (Greece), Barcelona (Spain), Bordeaux (France), Brussels (Belgium), Copenhagen (Denmark), Lisbon (Portugal), London (England), Lyon (France), Madrid (Spain), Malaga (Spain), Marseille (France), Nantes (France), Nice (France), Porto (Portugal), Rome (Italy), Toulouse (France) and Venice (Italy).

Year-round beach getaways with Air Transat

Sunny destinations are a big draw, even in the summer. That’s why the airline will fly direct once a week from Quebec City to Cancun (Mexico), Punta Cana (Dominican Republic) and, for the first time, Fort Lauderdale (United States).

 

It’s worth noting that last year marked the arrival of Air Transat’s first Airbus A321neoLRs. Combining these aircraft with Air Transat’s wide‑body fleet gives the airline a great deal of flexibility. It means more flights to Europe, the South and the United States in addition to connecting flights from major Canadian airports. Travellers win big, with more holiday choices and increased frequencies to their chosen destinations.
