The A321 NEO LR - a new experience for Bordeaux residents
Not only is Air Transat boosting its offering at Bordeaux airport, but this also places Bordeaux among the first airports to benefit from one of the airline’s A321 NEO LR aircraft. Air Transat will be the first North American airline to operate with this new-generation model, which will significantly enhance the in-flight passenger experience.
A host of possibilities awaiting in Canada
These flights to Montreal put Bordeaux’s travellers within easy reach of other key cities, such as Quebec, Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver, thanks to Air Transat’s domestic connections.
Air Transat also proposes multi-destination options allowing travellers to land in one Canadian city and take off from another, at no extra cost and for very competitive fares.
Plenty of reasons to explore this great country!
