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.

Air Transat now offers Visa Debit

Transat, one of the largest integrated tourism companies in the world and leader in Canada’s holiday travel industry, and Visa Canada are pleased to announce that Visa Debit is now accepted for bookings and seat selections made on airtransat.ca and via Air Transat’s call centres. Since October 12, 2012, Canadian cardholders have been making Visa Debit payments online and over the phone for air travel, safely and conveniently from their bank account.

Visa Debit allows one-step online electronic debiting of funds, and is backed by Visa’s multiple layers of security, which helps to reduce the risk of fraud through Visa’s Zero Liability Policy, Verified by Visa®, E-Promise, AVS (Address Verification Service) and CVV2 (the three-digit code). For more information about Visa’s Zero Liability Policy and E-Promise, visit www.visa.ca.

“Air Transat is constantly evolving to provide an enhanced customer experience,” said Joseph Adamo, Vice President, Marketing & Web Commercialisation, Transat Canada. “Implementing Visa Debit allows us to better meet the needs and wants of Canadian travellers, who are increasingly seeking greater flexibility in the way they pay for their purchases.”

“We’re pleased to enable Air Transat with the benefits of Visa Debit technology, and proud to bring Visa’s security, convenience and reliability to Air Transat and its passengers,” said Sue Whitney, Head of New Products, Visa Canada.
