Transat readies for
Europe battle in 2015
feisty Transat kicked off its 2015 EuroA
pean season to the trade last week
declaring “We’re ready!” for the battle with
Air Canada (and increasingly WestJet as it
makes its initial transatlantic forays) for the
hearts and wallets of Canadian consumers
and the business of the travel trade.
At a special VIP trade lunch in a gallery in Toronto’s Distillery District, Transat VP of National Accounts & Commerical Denise Heffron said, “I get a lot of questions about
the competition – no names – but let me say, we are ready!”
Alluding to the tsunami that currently is Air Canada
and Air Canada rouge, she said, “We knew what was
coming,” pointing
to the refurbishment
of Transat planes a
couple of years back
and reorganization of

Transat continues to look for opportunities to open up Eastern European, according to Transat Tours Canada commerical
director Nicole Bursey, with Heff ron noting that Transat’s goal is to add at least
two new destinations a year across its
roster in coming years.
Bursey reminded Transat’s top travel
agents and chain chiefs that the company

winter holidays in Europe.
She also asked for agents’ help in 2015

he “smoke on the
water” resulting
from the Dec. 4, 1971,
burning of the Montreux
Casino in Montreux,
Switzerland, has long
cleared from Lake
Geneva, but the fire’s
musical legacy lives on.
The fire, which broke
out during a Frank
Zappa concert, was immortalized in the Deep
Purple song Smoke on
the Water, and Francois
Michel of Switzerland’s
Leman region says
there’s a silver lining
in every tragedy. “We
all regret the casino
burned. But it was an
enormous promotion
[for Montreux],” he
says, adding, callers
to his office who are
left on hold will hear
the tune. Deep Purple
was in Montreux to
record an album and
band members actually
witnessed the fire. Michel says Montreux and
Deep Purple’s classic
song are forever linked.
“Everyone knows that
famous riff.”

Ryburn says holding an alligator

TAIWAN TOUTS
DINING OPTIONS
The Taiwan Tourism Bureau has turned
to some heavy hitters to get the word
out about dining in Taiwan. The bureau
brought chef Stuart Cameron, who
oversees seven Toronto restaurants,
and two American chefs to Taiwan to
experience the cuisine, which Cameron
gives the thumbs-up to. Cameron told
a Toronto audience he and his colleagues “ate lots of great food” and
Taiwanese food is a “big mix-match,”
shaped by many cultures. Taiwan tourism authorities say Taiwanese food is
very different from Chinese cuisine.
Cameron also said Taiwan “has lots
of good places” for visitors to see and
praised it for its cleanliness and ease
of travel. Meanwhile, Thomas Chang
of the Taiwan Tourism Bureau’s New
York office said Taiwan’s food is among
“highlights” of a Taiwan vacation. Canadian visitations to Taiwan have risen
20% this year, he added.
