Air Transat is marking its 30th anniversary in 2017 and has painted its three high-density configured Airbus A330-300s in a special livery to commemorate the milestone. The colour scheme features a white front end and a light blue that starts aft of the wing, gradating to sky blue at the tail with the Transat star and “30 Years” logo on the tail. The three aircraft will retain their anniversary markings for the duration of the year.
The airline currently operates 14 Airbus A330s. It plans to soon announce a replacement aircraft for its nine aging Airbus A310-300 jets, which average over 26.5 years old (the oldest was delivered to Transat in 2001, and three have already been retired and scrapped). There is speculation that the Airbus A321 will replace the A310 fleet.
The airline also operates a number of Boeing 737-800s, and brings on more wet-leased machines for the busy winter sun destination season from several European operators, including Smartwings and Transavia.
