Air Transat on 27 May launched Airbus A321neo LR services between Montreal and Bordeaux.
The route is operated three times weekly on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays throughout the summer season, with an additional fourth weekly service being added on 27 June.
Speaking at the launch, Pascal Personne, CEO Bordeaux Airport, noted that “For many years, Air Transat has shown its will to develop the transatlantic market from Bordeaux.
The A321 neo LR to Montreal is an additional asset for the airline, and also for the people of Bordeaux and the rest of New Aquitaine.
The aircraft is less noisy, more economical and provides improved passenger comfort. The aircraft has less than 200 seats, which makes it easier for markets like Bordeaux to consider long-haul routes.”
