Air Transat has announced that it will offer an exclusive non-stop service between Quebec City and London. From May 11 to September 28, 2022, travelers from the province of Quebec’s Capitale-Nationale region will be able to benefit from weekly direct flights to London’s Gatwick airport, making it easier than ever to discover this must-see European destination. At the same time, British tourists will now have direct access to magnificent Quebec City.

London-bound passengers will travel on the new-generation Airbus A321neo LR aircraft, which are perfectly aligned with the company’s ongoing efforts in responsible tourism, including a commitment to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. They consume 15% less fuel, and reduce both noise and NOx greenhouse gas emissions by half.
The route will operate on Wednesdays from Quebec City and Thursdays from London–Gatwick.
Enhanced service from Quebec City for summer 2022
Air Transat is continuing to expand its international service out of Quebec City by offering direct flights to six other destinations for the summer of 2022.
In addition to serving London, Air Transat also plans to restart its service between Quebec City and Paris, enabling travelers to enjoy exclusive service to two of Europe’s major metropolises. Sun-lovers are also sure to find something to their liking thanks to direct flights to Fort Lauderdale, now offered year-round, as well as connections to Cancún in Mexico and Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.
