TS Adds Summer Portugal Flight In Wake Of TAP Return
Less than a week after TAP Air Portugal announced it was returning to Canada after a 2-decade absence with year-round 5X-weekly Toronto-Lisbon flights, Air Transat has announced the addition of another direct LIS-YYZ flight to its transatlantic summer program.
During high season, TS will now offer daily non-stop service to Portugal via LIS or OPO. The new flight will be operated from YYZ, and service will also be available from YUL, YYC and YVR with connecting flights.
“In addition to travelling with the best leisure airline in North America according to Skytrax, Air Transat clients can benefit from flights to two destinations in Portugal: Lisbon and Porto. Our multi-destination option also increases the itinerary possibilities, allowing travellers to land in one city and return from another at no extra charge,” says Annick Guérard, President of Transat Tours Canada.
“Moreover, travellers will get access to plenty of one-stop packages, as well as à la carte accommodation and car rental services,” concludes Guérard.
Air Transat’s 2017 transatlantic flight program includes 28 destinations, now available to a greater number of travellers thanks to an enriched connecting flight program.
In addition to unveiling a new destination, Tel Aviv in Israel, the airline recently announced that it will be multiplying its direct flights to France, the United Kingdom, Italy, Greece, Spain, Portugal, Ireland and Croatia, while maintaining service to the Netherlands, Switzerland, Belgium and the Czech Republic.
