Air Transat, named World’s Best Leisure Airline of 2021 at the Skytrax World Airline Awards, is proud to have operated last night its very first flight between Quebec City and London (TS492). This exclusive service will be offered weekly, on Wednesdays from Quebec City and Thursdays from London-Gatwick, until late September.
“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. “We are the first carrier to fly internationally out of Quebec City's Jean Lesage International Airport (YQB), where we have been operating flights since our inception nearly 35 years ago.”
Air Transat passengers will fly on board the new-generation Airbus A321neoLR, which is 15% more fuel efficient, 50% 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.
