An aircraft combination to expand TS’s travel options


The month of May of last year marked the arrival of Air Transat’s first Airbus A321neoLRs. AerCap, the world’s largest Airbus A320neo family lessor, delivered the first of 15 of the first type to the leisure carrier.  

The leasing company’s CEO, Aengus Kelly, noted at the time that the plane would play a significant role in the future growth of the airline. Combining these aircraft with TS’s wide‑body fleet gives the airline a great deal of flexibility.

Back in July 2019, TS pushed forward its last Airbus A310 flight to April 27, 2020. Only six A310s remain in operation at TS. At its peak, the airline’s A310 fleet consisted of 14 planes.

The A321LR/wide-body aircraft combination means more flights to Europe, the South, and the United States, in addition to connecting flights from major Canadian airports.

To sum up, travelers will have more holiday choices and increased frequencies to their chosen destinations.

Air Transat, named the 2019 World’s Best Leisure Airline at the Skytrax World Airline Awards, is aimed at strengthening its position as a leader in holiday travel with its new summer flight schedule to Europe, South, the Antilles, and the United States.
