Maybe they could buy some of the A330's that Air Canada would like to get rid of.

Good choice I would say. Once a week summer + December-January Vancouver to Vienna should also be given a try (when oil comes down)

Isn't Air Transat expected to replace the A310 fleet soon? I read in their annual report that a decision on replacing the A310s with A350s or B787s will be announced sometime this year or early 2009.

I would think that the A332s will be operating these routes as I doubt the A310s have enough range.

It will be a good news to have more flights from Montral to Italy since only Zoom has direct flights from Montral to Italy.

A310-300 have a pretty good range

Maximum Range 11 hours 30 minutes, up to 5,200 nautical miles (8,320 km)

A332

Maximum Range 12 hours, up to 6,000 nautical miles (9,600 km)

Granted the A332 would make it more easily coming back to YVR  

Transat got 14 A313 and 3 A332 + 1 A333 3-4 more frames than 2-3 yrs ago...

If they're thinking of B787s or A350s I think "soon" is a litttle optimistic.  Smile

I suspect some of these flights will be operated by aircraft that used to operate to the UK. They have consolidated the UK market by using Thomas Cook aircraft for a lot of rotations and this will leave the aircraft to operate other routes.

TS is doing pretty good at BCN. We started with only 1 flight, then grow up to 2 in just 2 months, and now we have 3.

I hope that they keep growing because a Canadian carrier was needed at BCN.

Probably YVR will make better than other destinations and now that TS is even more open for spanish people this destination will fit all the Canadian needs.

Quite the opposite actually, Air Transat are taking over much of Thomas Cook's Canadian operation. They've gone from having four 757s in long haul configuration to just three this year, and the Gatwick based aircraft operates more short haul flights than long haul. Air Transat have taken over much of the Gatwick-Toronto traffic, as well as the Birmingham and Newcastle flights.
