Air Transat is adding year-round flights between Montreal and two popular destinations: Liberia, Costa Rica and San Salvador, El Salvador.
The Montreal-based airline previously flew to these cities only during the winter season but will now have service to each of them all year. Beginning May 2024, Air Transat will offer flights to San Salvador every Wednesday and flights to Liberia every Sunday from Montréal-Trudeau International Airport.
“This service extension is a reflection of our commitment to offer our customers flexible and varied travel options,” said Michèle Barre, Air Transat's chief revenue officer. “The annualization of these routes is a direct response to the growing interest in Latin American destinations, and we are proud to now offer these exclusive nonstop flights from Montreal year-round.”
The expansion of service to Latin America comes as Air Transat and tourism partners aim to grow travel to the region in the Canadian market.
“This expansion of operations will have an important impact on our tourism and economy through an increase in the flow of nationals and foreigners visiting our country,” said El Salvador Deputy Foreign Minister Adriana Mira. “It will also allow for a closer relationship between El Salvador and Canada and the strengthening of trade and investment relations between our countries.”
