12 January 2019 – Canada’s Air Transat has cancelled flights from Toronto to Split which it planned to add to its transatlantic flight programme in 2019.

The airline, which was named the 2018 World’s Best Leisure Airline,  announced in September last year that it would offer a weekly direct flight to Split from Canada from 20 June until 12 September but has confirmed to EX-YU Aviation News that the service has been cancelled. 

Air Transat’s Marketing Director Debbie Cabana said in a statement:

“For commercial reasons, we have decided to cancel our summer 2019 program for Split, Croatia. Nevertheless, Croatia remains a key destination for Transat and, given the interest shown by Canadians in the summer of 2018 and its potential for tourism development, we will be adding a third weekly departure from Toronto to Zagreb. Flights will be on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays during peak season. Passengers from Montreal and Vancouver will also benefit from a connecting flight to Toronto to take advantage of this added flight to Croatia. This third flight will make Zagreb accessible from Calgary as well, via return connecting flights to Toronto”.
