Travel agents choose Transat among their favorites

The company wins first place in two categories at the Agents’ Choice Awards.

Montreal, June 21, 2017 – As the travel industry's leading professionals, travel agents are best equipped to assess the quality of the products and services available to them. And as part of the 2017 edition of the Agents' Choice Awards, it comes as no surprise that Transat won first place in two categories, best Tour Operator and best Leasure/Charter Airline for Air Transat.

"The entire Transat team is incredibly honoured to be recognized by the Agent's Choice Awards. Working with our retail partners to deliver the best value for travellers is at the heart of what we do on a day-to-day basis and we share our success with them, "said Denise Heffron, Vice-President, National Sales and Commercial, Transat Tours Canada. "This recognition is particularly gratifying, given the fact that it’s Transat's 30th anniversary. It allows us to recognize the progress made thus far, and look to the future with our partnerships at the forefront.”

In addition to its first-place wins, Transat also came in second as favorite Supplier, in third in the Responsible Travel category and forth for both the Travel Insurance and Online Booking Resources (B2B) categories.

It is also worth noting that this is the tenth consecutive year that Air Transat has been named best Leisure/Charter Airline and the fourth year in a row that Transat has won best Tour Operator.

The 18th annual Agents’ Choice Awards, organized by Canadian Travel Press, Travel Courier and TravelPress.com, gave travel agents across the country the chance to vote for their favourite travel companies in 30 different categories.
