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.

Transat comes to Fort McMurray’s aid

The whole Transat team wishes to express its support for the people affected in one way or another by the forest fires raging in northern Alberta, especially in the Fort McMurray region.

As a gesture of solidarity, Transat is announcing a gift of $25,000 to the Canadian Red Cross to help relief efforts for the people and municipalities affected. It encourages its employees, as well as all Canadians, to make a personal donation via the website redcross.ca/forest-fires-in-alberta.

As an international tour operator, Transat’s corporate responsibility is reflected in the countries in which it operates as well in its 60-odd destination countries, where it is hard at work contributing to sustainable tourism industry development. In that vein, Transat supports a variety of social and humanitarian causes that provide assistance to local communities in need.
