Air Transat has announced a partnership with easyJet, creating new connections to Canada.
The company said that travellers arriving at London Gatwick airport from 78 cities in Europe and Africa will now have access to connecting flights to Canada with Air Transat through the Worldwide by easyJet platform.
An additional agreement with GatwickConnects will provide easyJet passengers with flight protection.
“London Gatwick has been a European mainstay for Air Transat for 30 years, with daily direct flights to Toronto as well as departures to major Canadian cities such as Vancouver, Calgary and Montreal. Moreover, it serves as one of easyJet’s main airports,” explains Annick Guérard, Chief Operating Officer at Transat.
“This agreement reinforces London Gatwick’s importance for Air Transat, which was named the 2018 World’s Best Leisure Airline. It makes us even more versatile, as we open up a range of possibilities to a new clientele looking to come to Canada,” she concludes.
Johan Lundgren, easyJet Chief Executive Officer, said: “We are really pleased to welcome Air Transat to ‘Worldwide by easyJet’ and are confident their addition to Worldwide will be very popular with our customers.
“We have been delighted with the appetite of partner airports and airlines to expand Worldwide across our network and continue to broaden our focus to launch more airline partners and add connectivity to more of our biggest airports. Tens of millions of connecting passengers travel each year with journeys which begin or end in Europe.”
