Leading Canadian leisure airline makes winter getaways easier than ever.

If there’s a silver lining to summer being officially over, it’s that now is the perfect time of year to start thinking about a sunny getaway.

Maybe it’s a reading a book on a white-sand beach along the Mexican Rivera, going on a hiking trek in Costa Rica, exploring the Florida Everglades’ subtropical wilderness or heading to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, for a family vacation.

Great news for Vancouver travellers: Air Transat has launched several new sun destinations with its enriched 2019-20 flight program, encompassing coveted warm-weather spots in Central America, Mexico, Florida, the Caribbean and Europe. Named the World’s Best Leisure Airline by Skytrax in 2019 for the second consecutive year, Air Transat will become the sole company to fly direct from Vancouver to Fort Lauderdale as of December 1, with two non-stop flights a week. Air Transat is also adding two weekly departures to Liberia and San José in Costa Rica and a direct flight to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.

Air Transat offers you the chance to experience premium food as well. Whether you are a new traveller or seasoned vet, every traveller understands that in-flight fare is a key factor of an enjoyable flight. Air Transat has raised the bar on sky-high dining with an exclusive gourmet menu designed by Quebec celebrity chef Daniel Vézina. Available via pre-order, all meals come complete with a salad, dessert, and glass of wine: consider it your own private restaurant above the clouds.

While this all sounds like a dream, for those travellers with little ones who may already be dreading their flight, have no fear, as Air Transat has got you covered with its Kids Club. Children aged two to 11 get a member’s kit with travel goodies and onboard surprises. With young globetrotters entertained, comfortable, and cared for, you get to spend more time relaxing and enjoying your time together.

Multiple destinations in Portugal, Spain, Mexico and the Southern U.S. are all on Air Transat’s roster this coming winter. If you have friends or family joining on a trip from other places in Western Canada, Air Transat makes things simple: There are now more flights out of Calgary, Victoria, Edmonton and Winnipeg. 

With Air Transat’s 2019-20 flight programs, winter can’t come soon enough.
