While our tour operating business and our aviation operations are tried and tested, our services continue to evolve to meet the expectations of travellers today and in the future.

Air Transat announced it will replace A310s with A321neos
Air Transat (TS, Montréal Trudeau) has announced it has signed longterm commitments with AerCapfor the delivery of ten A321neo(Long Range) jets.
The tentative deal was first disclosed by the carrier's unions in January this year. On twelve-year terms, the aircraft will deliver between spring 2019 and autumn 2020, and will replace the Canadian leisure specialist's fleet of nine A310-300s, which will be gradually retired. Once in service, Air Transat plans to deploy the type on flights to both Caribbean and transatlantic destinations. Aside from its A310s, Air Transat's fleet currently consists of eleven A330-200s, four A330-300s, one B737-700, and seven B737-800s.
Air Transat celebrated 30 years with special anniversary livery
Air Transat marked its 30th anniversary in 2017 and has painted its three high-density configured Airbus A330-300s in a special livery to commemorate the milestone. The colour scheme features a white front end and a light blue that starts aft of the wing, gradating to sky blue at the tail with the Transat star and “30 Years” logo on the tail. The three aircraft will retain their anniversary markings for the duration of the year. The airline currently operates 14 Airbus A330s.
It plans to soon announce a replacement aircraft for its nine aging Airbus A310-300 jets, which average over 26.5 years old (the oldest was delivered to Transat in 2001, and three have already been retired and scrapped). There is speculation that the Airbus A321 will replace the A310 fleet. The airline also operates a number of Boeing 737-800s, and brings on more wet-leased machines for the busy winter sun destination season from several European operators, including Smartwings and Transavia.
