Air Transat's inaugural, non-stop service to LAX from YUL on 16MAY marks the start of the carrier's operations in California.

“We are thrilled to be operating this route and flying passengers to a multifaceted city that is known for its many tourist attractions, but that also represents an excellent gateway to the rest of California,” said Joseph Adamo, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, Transat.

“The new flight shows our commitment to developing the transborder market and offering new destinations to travellers seeking discovery and experiences,” he added.

Flights to LAX will be operated until the end of OCT 2022 three times weekly, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.  On 19MAY, Air Transat also began its non-stop service between YUL and SFO, which will run twice a week on Thursdays and Sundays up until the end of OCT 2022.

Air Transat notes the introduction of the second Californian destination will allow Canadian travellers to book a multi-destination flight; for example, passengers can land in Los Angeles, venture along Route 1 and return home from San Francisco.

Air Transat also highlights that passengers flying to California will do so on board the new Airbus A321neoLR which is 15 per cent more fuel efficient, 50 per cent less noisy and lowers emissions of the greenhouse gas NOx by 50 per cent compared to previous generation aircraft.
