Montreal-based commercial airline Air Transat is adding four new routes to its 2022 summer flight program.

For the first time, the airline will be serving the San Francisco, Los Angeles and Amsterdam airports from Montreal. It will also offer an exclusive direct flight between Quebec City and London, which Air Transat officials say will strengthen its role as an international carrier from the Jean-Lesage Airport. Finally, Air Transat will operate routes to Fort Lauderdale and Miami year-round.

The Montreal – San Francisco flight will be operated twice weekly, while the Montreal – Los Angeles flight will run three times a week. During summer, the Montreal – Miami flight will be operated three times a week; and the Quebec City – Fort Lauderdale flight, once weekly. The Montreal – Amsterdam flight, meanwhile, will run three times a week; and the Quebec City – London flight, once weekly.

According to Air Transat officials, it’s now the only Canadian airline to fly direct from Montreal to Amsterdam.

“By analyzing travel trends, it’s clear that the United States is still one of the top destinations for Quebecers and Canadians in the wake of the pandemic,” Annick Guérard, Air Transat president and CEO, said in an Oct. 26 news release.
