 Air Transat and Porter Airlines are launching the first phase of their joint venture. 

Travellers can now use each partner's distribution channels to book direct and connecting flights with either Air Transat or Porter, therefore significantly increasing their access to a wide and expanding range of destinations around the world.

This means that Air Transat now offers an extensive range of destinations operated by Porter across Canada—from St. Johns to Victoria—and select U.S. cities including Boston, Chicago, Fort Lauderdale, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York, Orlando, Tampa and Washington through airtransat.com. 

Porter now provides non-stop flights operated by Air Transat to Europe from Toronto Pearson (YYZ), Montréal-Trudeau (YUL) and Québec City (YQB), as well as connecting flights to Europe from anywhere in Canada on flyporter.com.

“Our alliance is enhancing the travel experience by seamlessly integrating our services across North and Latin America, as well as Europe and North Africa. By leveraging the strengths of our highly complementary networks, we are committed to delivering more choice to Canadians with a high-quality service," said Sebastian Ponce, chief revenue officer at Transat, in a statement. 

“Porter’s growing presence throughout North America fits perfectly with Air Transat’s international routes,” added Edmond Eldebs, SVP and chief commercial officer at Porter. “We are able to operate independently, but collaboratively, to give passengers more choices when they are booking their travel, whether for single flights or itineraries requiring connections with both airlines.”

Ticket sales for these new flight options, which will progressively open over the next few weeks, begin today for travel starting June 13, 2024.
