Air Transat kicked off the 2023-2024 sun destinations season at the Greater Moncton Roméo LeBlanc International Airport (YQM), on 21DEC, by celebrating the air carrier’s first direct flight of the season from Moncton to Cancun.
“We are excited that direct flights from Greater Moncton to some popular sun destinations are starting as early as December, which provides more opportunities for travelers who are looking to escape the cold temperatures earlier this season,” said Courtney Burns, President and CEO of the Greater Moncton International Airport Authority. “Sun destination flights are always very popular during the winter at YQM, and we are happy to offer an earlier start to the season this year along with direct flights to some of the most sought-after sun destinations,” she added.
“Our flight program is not just a return to normal; it's a leap forward,” said Joseph Adamo, Air Transat’s Chief Sales and Marketing Officer. “Winter 2023-2024 brings a substantial capacity boost, allowing us to enhance our services in the Maritimes. By moving up the start date for certain routes and thus extending our operations period, we're ensuring our passengers have an abundance of flight options, right at their fingertips.”
Weekly Air Transat flights to Cancun will be available every Thursday, and starting on 22DEC, weekly flights to Punta Cana will be available every Friday.
In FEB 2024, a weekly flight to Varadero will start, as well as flights to Orlando, which are now offered twice weekly. Air Transat departures to sun destinations from YQM will be offered until MAY 2024.
