Air Transat has unveiled its 2022-2023 winter program to the South, revealing a wide selection of 26 destinations, including the Caribbean, the Pacific coast of Mexico, the Antilles, Latin America and Florida.

"We are pleased to kickstart the winter season with such a strong program. Continuously attuned to the needs of our clientele, we’ve noticed a significant interest in adult-only properties and in the beautiful city of Havana,” said Joseph Adamo, Transat's chief sales and marketing officer. “We are therefore quite proud to present these two additions today. We've been at the heart of Canadian travellers’ vacation plans for almost 35 years now; it's a genuine honour for us to help them create unforgettable memories with their loved ones, or by themselves.”

“Whether it's absolute relaxation, cultural discoveries, wild adventures, or even all three, I'm convinced that our program will fulfill every single one of their needs.”  

Back to Havana

Among the highlights of this winter’s program, Air Transat will return to Havana after a three-year hiatus due to the pandemic.

Starting Dec. 19, direct flights will be offered from Montreal three times a week, on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
