Air Transat works to reduce the adverse environmental consequences of its activities and encourages its employees, customers and partners to do the same.

According to the UN World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are a factor in the rise in average temperatures worldwide. Because tourist activity is thought to account for 5% of GHG emissions globally, Air Transat believes that it must act responsibly to reduce its carbon footprint.

An innovative and rigorous fuel savings program

  • As Canada's leading holiday airline, Air Transat flies millions of people to beautiful vacation destinations every year. These operations result in GHG emissions. Although air transportation accounts for only 2% of worldwide GHG emissions, Air Transat believes that everyone must do their part to combat climate change and support airline industry standards and goals established by IATA and ICAO. To that end, in 2004 it instituted a fuel management program, which has since become one of the most innovative and rigorous in the industry.
