“In spite of the increase of more than 10% in the overall capacity on the transatlantic market, these are among the best third-quarter results we’ve ever posted,” commented Jean-Marc Eustache, Transat’s President and Chief Executive Officer, adding: “In the entire history of the company, we’ve done better on only two occasions, including last year, which was a record. So we’re talking about a very satisfying start to the season.”
