A new direct long haul flight to Canada from  Nice Côte d’Azur airport for summer 2016   


The Air Transat airline is strengthening its services to Canada by adding Toronto as a new scheduled long haul destination from Nice Côte d'Azur Airport.

After New York and Montreal,Aéroports de la Côte d'Azur is pleasedto expand the choice of its long-haul services to 3 North American destinationswith the addition of Toronto in the summer. It thus becomes the only French airport after Paris to offer so many scheduled destinations to the United States and Canada.

As part of its summer 2016 schedule, Air Transat will inaugurate,on 24 May 2016, its brand new connection between Nice Côte d'Azur Airport and Toronto.

This new service will be available on an A310 (250 seats)once a week(departure from Nice on Tuesdays: 11h40 - arrival at Toronto: 14h25 / departure from Toronto on Mondays: 20h25 - arrival at Nice: 10h00).It complements the 2 weekly flights that Air Transat already operates to Montreal since 1993.

After Montreal, discover Toronto, right next to Niagara Falls, the fifth most populated city of  North America,  capital of the province of Ontario and one of the largest in the  Great Lakes region, offering the population of the French Riviera an even wider range of destinations!

This new link will also allow the population of Ontario, the second Canadian region sending visitors to the French Riviera, to appreciate the charm of our territory less than an 8-hour flight away.

This new service fits within the framework ofthe Territorial Competitiveness Contract launched last June in which Aéroports de la Côte d'Azur undertook to REDUCE its airport charges for scheduled commercial aviation for 10 years, to the benefit of its local territory as well as current and future partner airlines. The drop in airport charges will amount to -2.5% for winter 2016/17. These new rates will then be frozen for the following nine years.
