Two new destinations will be added to TS’s
Europe route map for 2016 – Zagreb in Croatia and Italy’s Pisa. In announcing
next year’s program the airline also revealed increased frequencies and
capacity on many of its European flights.
Direct flights to a total of 29 European
destinations are scheduled for 2016. In addition, TS says newly launched routes
between Toronto and Nice, Montreal and Glasgow as well as Vancouver and Rome
will also translate into new options for Canadians planning their vacations to

flights to Budapest and Prague, we are continuing with our development plan by
offering the most complete and flexible offer on the market,” says Annick
Guérard, General Manager for Transat Tours Canada.
