Air Transat will add New Orleans, Louisiana, to its portfolio of fall and winter destinations. Beginning 3NOV, the airline will offer two direct flights a week from Montreal, on Thursdays and Sundays.
“With the steady demand for New Orleans, Air Transat is pleased to be the only airline to offer non-stop service from Montreal to this unique vacation destination, and to be enhancing its offering for next winter with this distinctive option,” said Annick Guérard, Transat’s Chief Operating Officer.
“Adding this new route strengthens Air Transat’s status as a Canadian leader in leisure travel while also providing greater flexibility to business travellers visiting Louisiana, who will have the option of extending their stay.”
Full details of Air Transat’s 2019 winter flight program will be announced shortly.
