Air Transat Receiving A320's For The Winter

Wed Jul 30, 2003 2:04 am

Hey,

I didnt know this but I was just looking at Air Transats winter schedule to plan my vacation for the winter and saw that some of their routes are going to be flown with A320's for example to Montego Bay Jamaica and Acapulco Mexico.

Anyone have any more information on these A320's?

Regards,

That's interesting! Do you see this on their website?

TS is linked with Star Airlines of France who operate several 320's. Theya re the likely source. There was a rumour last winter that TS would lease a 332 to Star in exchange for 2 320's. Perhaps this is what will happen this winter.

Hey,

yup its on their website schedule. The thing is TS is using alot of A330's for the winter season down south, it appears that they are keeping the A330 and taking the 320's but I could be wrong.

Are you sure that its not Air Transat Holidays?? It could just be a tour operated by Skyservice...though 320's would be the likely 757 replacement for the winter sched...

Nope. They operate the L10, 313, 330. Previously the 752, 722.

Not sure if its Air Transat holidays but im just saying what I saw on their website. Many of their winter routes are now scheduled with A320's. I have no idea if Skyservice is being contracted for this work.

It seems very interesting though.

YES TS is getting 2 A320 for the winter and sending one A330-200 to sister Star Airlines in France. There will be one A320 based in YYV and the second will be based in YMX
