Air Transat to launch its transatlantic service with its recently delivered Airbus A321 long-range
Air Transat, launched its inaugural transatlantic service with its recently delivered Airbus A321LR.
The long-range single-aisle jet will take off from Toronto-Pearson International Airport (YYZ) to London-Gatwick (LGW).
On October 31, Air Transat’s A321LRs will also debut on the YYZ to Glasgow (GLA) route, followed by a daily YYZ to LGW rotation that will become official in November. Lastly, the carrier will also deploy the A321LR on the YYZ to Manchester (MAN) route in November.
The A321LR will replace both the Airbus A310 and A330s on these Air Transat flights. The A310 is set to be withdrawn from the airline’s fleet in April 2020, putting an end to a lengthy service worldwide.
The brand-new jets seat 199 passengers in a two-class configuration: 12 in Club Class (Premium Economy) and 187 in Economy.
Air Transat has another 13 A321LRs on order, as well as an additional two A321neos and expect to receive all new aircraft by the end of 2022.
