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. 


Basel-Mulhouse Travel Guide

  • Where Switzerland, France and Germany meet

    The Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg airport is one of the few in the world to be operated jointly by more than one country—ideal for a town like Basel that is nestled in the nook between Switzerland, France and Germany.

Discover Basel-Mulhouse

  • Sights: impressive museums

    Basel’s Puppenhausmuseum is the largest dollhouse museum in Europe, with 6000 exhibits arranged in detailed vignettes covering four floors. It claims its teddy bear collection—unique internationally in terms of variety and quality—is also the biggest in the world.

    Visitors to the Kunstmuseum Basel are hard-pressed to think of an internationally renowned artist not represented here. Works from Monet, Van Gogh, Picasso, Warhol, Munch and more hang here. It’s by far the largest and most significant public art collection in Switzerland.

  • Food

    At the Blindekuh Basel, blind or partially sighted waiters serve seasonal Swiss meals completely in the dark. The aim is for diners to use alternative senses to enjoy this unique culinary experience.

    Foodies get the full Dreiländereck (three countries’ corner) experience at St. Alban-Eck. Located in a 750-year-old building that still boasts the original oak door, the restaurant has been serving exquisite Swiss, French and German specialties for years.

  • Outings: carnivals and more

    Travellers lucky enough to be in Basel the Monday after Ash Wednesday are in for a treat. Fasnacht, Switzerland’s biggest carnival, unleashes 18,000 masked and costumed Fasnächtler onto the city for exactly 72 hours of merrymaking. Visitors should prepare to be ankle-deep in confetti—locals insist the tradition of throwing tiny pieces of coloured paper during celebrations started here.

    For a glimpse of what Basel might have looked like once upon a time, tourists head to the medieval town of Alstadt. With Gothic spires and narrow streets lined with impeccably maintained, centuries-old houses, much of this area has hardly changed since the 1600s.
