In addition, newly launched routes between Toronto and Nice, Montreal and Glasgow and Vancouver and Rome will also translate into a world of new options for Canadians whose interest in new destinations is growing steadily.

Beginning on December 20, 2015, Transat will fly to Curaçao, the Caribbean’s best-kept secrets, from Toronto on Sundays through to April 3, 2016. Zagreb in Croatia will be offered on Tuesdays as of June 15, 2016 direct from Toronto and via a connecting flight from Montreal.

  • travellers from Toronto to go to Brussels, Malaga, Bâle, Nice, Lyon, Bordeaux, Nantes and Toulouse thanks to the Toronto-Montreal flights;
  • travellers from Montreal to go to Manchester, Glasgow, Birmingham, Lamezia, Amsterdam and Zagreb thanks to the Montreal-Toronto flights;
