Air Transat resumes direct Toronto-Faro route
Air Transat’s Toronto to Faro service
Air Transat has resumed its weekly connection between Toronto and Faro. The service started on 18 January 2022 and runs until 25 October 2022. It is the first time the airline has extended operations to the Algarve during the summer.
The route expands connectivity in the region, as Air Transat has regular operations to several airports in Canada, including Vancouver, Calgary, and Montreal.
The airline has been operating regularly to Faro Airport, but until now with regular flights only in the winter months.
This resumption is possible due to the joint effort between the airline, ANA – VINCI Airports, and the regional and national tourism entities, counting on 20 more movements in the IATA winter and 64 more movements in the summer.
Francisco Pita, Chief Commercial Officer of ANA – Aeroportos de Portugal, said: “With this important launch by Air Transat, placing the Algarve in its route portfolio as a summer destination, new opportunities for the development of the tourism in the region open up. It will be a valuable diversification of supply on the summer routes to Faro Airport and we are very optimistic about the success of this operation.”
Joseph Adamo, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, Air Transat, added: “We are thrilled to resume our operations in Faro and in the process enhancing our service between Canada and Portugal. Now offered year-round, this route allows Canadian travellers to explore the magnificent region of the Algarve, an increasingly popular coastal destination that has so much to offer in the way of rich culture and majestic scenery, while also offering more travellers from Portugal the chance to discover the Great White North.”
