Due to the recent hurricanes in some of our South destinations, we are experiencing an increased amount of additional baggage among our customers. Although we deeply appreciate this show of support and kindness, please note that extra weight or additional baggage, depending on the space available, may be refused for operational reasons.
We thank you for your understanding.

On board coin charity

Throughout the year, we help people make their vacation dreams come true. But there are other dreams we want to help make come true as well.

Children's Wish Foundation

Transat helps realize the dreams of children who have entrusted a cherished wish to the Canadian Children's Wish Foundation, a non-profit organization whose mission is to enable children with life-threatening illnesses to fulfil their most heartfelt wish.

SOS Children's Villages

Transat has partnered with the international humanitarian organization SOS Children’s Villages to contribute to the well-being of children in its destination countries, where often even their most basic needs are not met. Present in 132 countries, SOS Children’s Villages has been working on behalf of orphaned and abandoned children for more than 60 years, and cares for over 70,000 children in 500 SOS Villages. The organization’s programs are serving over 700,000 children, and endeavour to respond to children’s primary needs in terms of healthcare, professional training and personal guidance.

With the help of its customers and employees, Transat provides significant financial support to this organization that gives disadvantaged children a warm, affectionate, secure and permanent family environment.
