Air Transat’s routes between Montreal and San Salvador, El Salvador, and Liberia, Costa Rica will now be available year-round, the airline announced Thursday (Nov. 30)
Previously, the two routes operated only during the winter season.
“This service extension is a reflection of our commitment to offer our customers flexible and varied travel options,” said Michèle Barre, Transat's chief revenue officer, in a press release. “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.”
As of May 1, 2024, flights to San Salvador will be operated every Wednesday, and flights to Liberia will be operated every Sunday.
The new frequencies will provide travellers with an opportunity to discover the two destinations outside of the peak winter travel season.
At the same time, they provide greater flexibility for Salvadoran and Costa Rican communities settled in Canada, making it easier to reunite with loved ones at any time of the year.
“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.”
