Transat: “The summer of 2010 was our best ever, as our teams were able to generate excellent load factors on the transatlantic market, allowing us to offset the results recorded last winter, which had been difficult. Consequently, we end the year on a very positive note, with a much increased margin compared with 2009,” Jean-Marc Eustache, President and Chief Executive Officer. Source: Transat, 16-Dec-2010.
