Although late news, definitely something not to miss, especially for Air Transat, Canada’s low-fare option to the caribbean and cross-atlantic.
Air Transat (Transat, AT) has announced the final A310 flight.
After being in service from 1999, Air Transat has finally decided to let the A310s rest for good. Here is how it will affect both Canadian and North American and South American Operations.
How it will Affect Canadian Operations
The A310 was known for it’s amazing service on small but popular routes to the caribbean and some Cross-Atlantic. These A310s will be leaving the fleet in place for the new A321LRs, which stated by the Chief Operating Officer,
“The arrival of this new generation of aircraft is an important moment for our company and our passengers in many respects. The Airbus A321neoLR represents what Air Transat stands for today and what we strive for in the coming years” .
How it will affect the Americas
For aviators like us, the A310 is big. Sadly, if you want to fly these babies one more time, you will need to catch one of these flights, as Air Transat is the last A310 operator in the Americas. If you want to fly an A310, you’d have to fly down to Iran.
What are the last flights of the A310?
