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 Europe next summer.
