Global Affairs Canada has recently elevated it’s advisory for Haiti to avoid all travel due to the reigning civil unrest throughout the country.   This is the highest level of the Canadian government’s Travel Advice and Advisories.

Considering the current level of insecurity, we strongly recommend that you respect this advisory.

Information regarding vacation packages
Given the uncertain accessibility of the road leading to the Royal Decameron Indigo Beach, Transat cannot guarantee safe transfers and has therefore stopped the sale of vacation packages, until the end of April 2019.

Information regarding flights
Until the government has reduced its alert level, all customers who have booked a flight to Haiti for the months of February, March and April 2019 are entitled to modify their reservation without penalty. Customers are invited to contact their travel agency or Air Transat’s Contact Center to adjust their file accordingly.

For the time being, Air Transat’s flight operations continue as planned.  However, the situation may change at any moment and without notice. 


Manchester Travel Guide

  • World’s first modern city

    With its rich historical heritage, Manchester is ripe for exploration and never dull thanks to its equally vibrant cultural scene. Travellers can hop on one of the many flights to discover the world’s first industrial city.

Discover Manchester

  • Culture

    Socialism and universal suffrage both began in Manchester. Marx and Engels even wrote The Communist Manifesto here. Fitting then that The People’s History Museum—housed in a refurbished Edwardian pumping station—should find its home in this city. It brings political science to life on an interactive journey through 200 years of British democracy.

    For a more current take on the humanities, tourists will stroll down Oxford Road, known by Mancunians as The Cultural Corridor for being packed with galleries, museums and theatres. Modern art lovers head to Cornerhouse, while natural history buffs can spend hours in The Manchester Museum.

  • Outings in the city

    Anyone remotely interested in soccer can’t visit Mancunia without taking a tour of Old Trafford, home of the world’s most famous football club, Manchester United. Fans can jog down the players’ tunnel, and try to kick a ball as hard as Wayne Rooney in the stadium’s museum.

    Those who consider shopping a sport love what Manchester has to offer. For a high-end, big-brand spree, King Street is the place to be. Travellers can find quirkier one-off items and local talent in the Northern Quarter at stores like Retro Rehab and No Angel.

  • Food and Tea Rooms

    A great new addition to the city’s landscape of eateries, Richmond Tea Rooms is a Tim Burtonesque take on British tradition. Clashing and colourful, it takes high tea even higher.

    Food lovers head to Isinglass for its down-to-earth Mancunian approach to going local. Traditional British dishes like Cumberland Sausage and Mash are made with ingredients sourced from close-to-home.
