On 11MAY, Air Transat operated its first flight between YQB and LGW (TS492), which will operate once weekly on Wednesdays until late SEP.
“With this new flight to London, Air Transat becomes the only carrier to offer our loyal travellers in the Quebec City area a second direct connection to Europe, after Paris, making it easier than ever for them to plan their vacations. At the same time, we are delighted to introduce British travellers to majestic Quebec City, the region’s outstanding national parks and our gourmet culture,” said Joseph Adamo, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, Transat.
Air Transat passengers to LGW will fly on board the new-generation Airbus A321neoLR, which the carrier highlights is 15 per cent more fuel efficient, 50 per cent less noisy and lowers emissions of the greenhouse gas NOx by half compared to previous-generation aircraft. In addition, its modern cabin provides more personal space and larger individual entertainment screens in both Economy and Club Class.
“The people of the Greater Québec City area have been calling for access to more European destinations. By offering a second direct route to Europe, in addition to Paris, Air Transat is answering that call,” said Stéphane Poirier, President and CEO of YQB.
