TGV AIR Is Back Following Successful Year
Given its success in 2019, TGV AIR will be back in the summer of 2020. In partnership with SNCF, France's national rail service, Air Transat offers its clients a one-stop shop allowing them to combine a flight to Paris with rail travel from Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport.
Travellers can thus access 18 French cities as well as Brussels, Belgium.
"Our priority is to give tourists choices," says Guérard. "Many of our customers took advantage of this service this year."
