July 20, 2017 -

Effective July 19, 2017, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has implemented enhanced security measures for passengers flying to the United States. These measures include heightened inspection of personal electronic devices, such as laptops and tablets. Electronic devices larger than a smartphone must be charged with enough battery power to be turned on upon request and easily accessible, with covers, cases or any other packaging removed, in preparation for screening at the security checkpoint. Any refused item will not be permitted in checked baggage. Air Transat will be unable to provide storage or assume responsibility for these items during your trip.

To allow for additional time to go through security and to ensure you don’t miss your flight, please arrive at the airport three hours prior to your scheduled departure time.

For further information, please visit the U.S. Department of Homeland Security website.

Discover Ontario, from Niagara Falls to the Thousand Islands

The top tourist attraction in Ontario, Niagara Falls is one of the most dramatic natural phenomena in North America. Visitors can feel its power from the viewing area or charter a boat to get up close. Niagara Falls is just 90 minutes from Toronto, the most multicultural city in the world. Over 100 languages are spoken regularly in Toronto, and the city is made up of ethnic enclaves that all come together in downtown’s Kensington Market.
East of Toronto is Ontario’s farming area, which has the distinction of providing Canada with half its food. Visitors can go to towns like Perth, and areas like Prince Edward County and the 1000 Islands for a fresh farm-to-table experience.

Niagara-on-the Lake and Stratford

Ontario is Canada’s theatre capital thanks to two annual summer festivals: the Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the Lake (right near Niagara Falls) that pays homage to George Bernard Shaw, and the Shakespeare Festival two hours west of Toronto in Stratford. Many of Britain’s most celebrated thespians have taken the stage in Stratford, including Sir Alec Guinness, John Neville, and Dame Maggie Smith.

For drama of a different kind, political buffs can make their way northeast to Ottawa, Canada’s national capital, to watch the Canadian parliament in session. It’s similar in style to the British parliament, complete with lively debate and occasional name-calling. In the winter, the Rideau Canal just outside Ottawa’s parliament buildings turns into a 7.8-kilometre skating rink. Every Ottawa tourism guide recommends it, and for good reason.

Great lakes beyond the Great Lakes

Ontario borders four of the five Great Lakes (Lake Ontario, Lake Huron, Lake Erie, and Lake Superior). But Ontario’s best bodies of water are actually in Muskoka cottage country, roughly three hours north. Lake Muskoka, Lake Rosseau, and Lake Joseph are home to some of the most magnificent summer estates in the world. East of the Muskoka region is Algonquin Provincial Park, home of over 2,400 small and medium size lakes that offer the exact opposite experience to the millionaire Muskokas.

Book a flight to Toronto with Air Transat, plan a day in Niagara Falls then explore the rest of Canada’s most diverse province.

Ontario must-see destinations



A harmonious multicultural population, a thriving downtown core surrounded by unique neighbourhoods, and no shortage of things to do have helped Toronto reset the urban bar to become a must-see city in North America.
