Air Transat schedules Split launch

NEWS FLASH


Air Transat has confirmed reports it is set to launch a seasonal one weekly flight between Toronto and Split next summer. In a statement, the leisure carrier's Chief Operating Officer, Annick Guerard, said, "Starting in the summer of 2019, we will offer a weekly direct flight to Split, known for its picturesque beaches on the Adriatic Sea. Tourism has seen incredible growth in the Balkan Peninsula, which many now rank among the top European destinations”.

That’s why Air Transat is proud to be meeting this demand even better by upping its offer to three direct flights from Toronto, including two to Zagreb. And thanks to our connecting flights from Montreal and Vancouver, more travellers can now discover Croatia’s second largest city”. Travellers will be able to start booking flights to Split shortly.

  1. This is an interesting development. In the future we'll be seeing more of these routes with the arrival of LR narrow-bodies.

    1. Maybe SPU will be linked with another airport? Maybe it will operate via ZAG?

    4. It is interesting the statement says "direct flight".
      That is not necessarily non-stop.
      "DIrect" means it can operate via a third airport but pax do not change the flight equipment and do not have to disembark.

    5. I’m guessing they will use the A321neoLR.

    8. I've just checked. Airbus A330-200 Takeoff : 2220m. Landing is about 1800m. These data are for MTOW and MSA standards.

      SPU has 2500m TORA.

  3. It's nonstop with A330-200. Also, Zagreb is upgraded to A330-300.

    1. So Split can handle A330200 fully loaded with it's runway?

    2. It can for landing but it can't for departure. There will probably be load restrictions.

    3. Will most likely be the A321neoLR
