Eco Fares: choose your level of flexibility

At Air Transat, we want to make sure your vacation is the best it can be and full of joy. That’s why we’ve created Eco Fares, a range of fare classes that offer you the flexibility to cancel or modify your flight for free or for a nominal fee, so that you’re prepared for whatever life throws your way.

And, because we believe that your vacation should start the moment you book with us, our Eco Fares also boast a host of other built-in perks, such as priority airport services, additional checked baggage allowance and more.
