Air Transat, a Canadian leisure airline, flew the first flight between Montreal and Amsterdam yesterday. To take advantage of the summer travel season, the airline expects to run three trips every week until mid-October.
Air Transat's magnificent flying plan for the 2022 summer travel season was published by Simple Flying late last year. Other major European cities served by the airline include London, Paris, Malaga, Barcelona, Madrid, Rome, Dublin, Glasgow, and Manchester, among others.
The award-winning leisure airline said the additional route is being added to address increased summer travel demand. Indeed, the route will only be available until mid-October, allowing Canadians plenty of time to see Amsterdam and other regions of northern Europe.
On Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, Air Transat will operate the route three times a week. This service will be provided by one of the leisure carrier's Airbus A321neo(LR) aircraft. The A321neos of Air Transat have a two-class configuration with a total of 199 seats. There are 12 business class seats and the rest are regular economy seats. All economy seats have 31" of pitch and individual 10.1" touch displays, while premium Club seats have 38" of pitch and larger 13.3" touch screens, making them slightly more suited to lengthy travels.
The inaugural aircraft (TS324) departed Montréal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport (YUL) yesterday for a seven-hour travel to Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport (AMS). The aeroplane (registered C-GOIE) had completed its return journey to YUL as flight TS325, at the time of writing this piece.
