Montreal, October 11, 2022 – Air Transat is enhancing its exclusive virtual interlining service with the addition of Viva Air to its innovative connectair by Air Transat platform. This now means travellers can combine select Air Transat and Viva Air flights, making it easy for them to fly via Cartagena to Cali, Medellín, Bogotá, Cucuta, Pereira, Neiva, and Pasto.
“Our objective with connectair by Air Transat is to offer an ever-wider range of destinations to our customers and thus continue growing our network. The addition of Viva Air brings the total of partners accessible through our platform to ten and allows us to multiply travel options to Colombia, in addition to the direct flights we already offer to Cartagena,” says Michèle Barre, Vice-President, Network, Revenue Management and Pricing, at Air Transat.
“Through this virtual interlining service, we are further expanding opportunities to connect our passengers between South America and Canada with a single transaction, therefore providing them more international travel options. We will continue to maintain our characteristic low prices on the routes operated directly by Viva,” assured Pablo Madriñan, CCO of the Viva group.
Connections are available through the search engine on airtransat.com and through some flight aggregators. Bookings also include an assistance service in case of flight delay or cancellation, ensuring that travellers arrive at their destination as quickly as possible.
