Canadian leisure airline Air Transat has announced that it will start a new service between Montréal and New Orleans on November 3, 2019. Montréal will be the second Canadian destination to be served from New Orleans International Airport in the upcoming schedule.

We are thrilled to have Air Transat provide this convenient direct connection between New Orleans and Montreal—two great North American cities with rich cultures and shared historical ties to France. The addition of this new flight brings us to a total of 8 international destinations […].Kevin Dolliole, Aviation Director at New Orleans International Airport

The new connection between the two cities will be operated two times per week. Air Transat plans to deploy Boeing 737-800 aircraft on the route.

In addition to Montréal, the Canadian flag carrier Air Canada operates a daily service from Toronto to the city in Louisiana. Other international destinations of New Orleans’ route portfolio include Panama City, Frankfurt and London.
