Air Transat announced the deployment of two special flights over the next few days to return Canadians stranded in El Salvador and Guatemala back home. These flights, operated in collaboration with the Government of Canada, are in addition to those already planned by the airline.
“To date, our repatriation flights have brought approximately 46,000 customers back home, and this number will continue to rise in the coming days,” said Jean-Marc Eustache, president and chief executive officer of Transat. “From this time forward, all our efforts will be dedicated to achieving a single goal: to safely repatriate as many Canadians as possible.”
There will be a flight from San Salvador to Montreal on Friday, March 27, aboard a Boeing 737-800.
There will be a flight from Guatemala City to Montreal on Friday, March 27, aboard an Airbus A321-200.
