Transat have revealed their plans for next winter’s vacation flights to the sun. They will fly to 36 sun destinations from 22 Canadian cities this winter, as well as to several European destinations. Tampa and San Juan are new options for the winter, with flights from both Toronto and Montreal.
Tampa Florida is a city that is already well-known among Canadian travellers. It boasts lots of great restaurants, not to mention outdoor activities and, of course, beautiful beaches. San Juan Puerto Rico, the other new destination, is one of the oldest cities in America. With its spectacular beaches and picturesque colourful buildings, the island of Puerto Rico appeals to travellers in search of history, culture and relaxation. Both of these new destinations are also departure points for many new cruise packages.
In Europe, travellers in search of some warmer winter temperatures in Europe will be able to get away to Portugal from Toronto, with four flights a week to Lisbon, one to Porto and one to the Algarve during peak season.
Transat is also increasing its flights to the UK from Toronto by offering two flights a week to Manchester and Glasgow, in addition to continuing its year-round daily flights to London Gatwick. I flew this route with Transat earlier this month and it was timely, comfortable and very good value.
