Air Transat expanding flights out of Maritimes

There will be more options to fly to sunny destinations this winter out of Halifax and Moncton.

Air Transat has expanded its offerings for the 2023/24 season, and it will offer more than 20 direct flights per week to 10 destinations in the Caribbean, Mexico and the United States.

For the very first time, Air Transat is expanding its winter operations in the Maritimes by moving up the start date for certain routes to meet growing demand.  In the past, these destinations were only available beginning in February. This year, December 18 will be the start date for various flights departing from Halifax (Cancún, Cayo Coco, Fort Lauderdale, Holguín, Orlando, Punta Cana and Varadero) and from Moncton (Cancún and Punta Cana).

“The rise in our overall capacity for winter 2023-2024 also includes a major increase in the frequency of flights to South destinations, while enabling us to keep on strengthening our air network as we offer our customers in the Maritimes even more flight options,” said Michèle Barre, Air Transat’s Chief Revenue Officer.

Air Transat will also increase its flights to Florida from the Maritimes. One additional direct flight per week will be offered from Halifax to Orlando, while two direct flights to Orlando will depart from Moncton.

In addition to Halifax and Moncton, it will also offer flights from Montreal, Quebec City, Toronto, Ottawa, London and Hamilton.
