Transat has launched an exclusive training program for new travel professionals, an initiative that it says represents a "significant step forward" in the company's commitment to nurturing talent and fostering growth within the travel industry. 

The "Transat Rookie Camp" is aimed at travel professionals with less than three years' experience.

"At Transat, we recognize the value of a well-trained travel professional and choose to invest in the development of these rookies, who we believe are essential to the collective success of the industry," said Nicole Bursey, commercial director at Transat. "This training reflects our commitment to the agencies and our continuing desire to be a supportive partner."

A "multi-faceted curriculum"

Transat's commercial team says it has developed a multi-faceted curriculum to be delivered at destination. 

Through a combination of interactive workshops, hands-on exercises and one-on-one mentoring, participants will gain the knowledge, skills and confidence needed to successfully promote Transat throughout their careers. 

Sessions are led by seasoned Transat and Air Transat professionals with extensive experience in their respective fields, providing valuable insight and practical guidance.

As there is no substitute for first-hand experience, Transat has partnered with the following organizations to ensure that Rookie Camp participants are fully immersed in the destination and product:

  • Bahia Principe Hotels & Resorts
  • Barcelo Hotel Group
  • Iberostar Hotels & Resorts
  • Melia Hotels & Resorts
  • Palladium Hotel Group
  • Trafic Tours
  • World of Hyatt Inclusive Collection

The first Rookie Camp kicked off Thursday (April 4) at Paradisus Playa del Carmen & Paradisus La Perla and will run until April 11. It will bring together 102 agents, seven partner representatives, and eight Transat/Air Transat staff.
