Ethos and strategy
Canadian Affair believes the bespoke advice from its expert staff, combined with frequent flights at the lowest prices is the optimum offering to UK-Canada travellers.
Passenger volumes allow Canadian Affair to be the most competitive UK-Canada tour operator in the market. Canadian Affair strives to operate as an efficient, caring and sustainable company, and as part of the Transat family we are firmly committed to the responsible development of the tourism industry. Transat has adopted the following definition of sustainable tourism: "Sustainable tourism entails respect for nature, as well as for host communities and their values; it combines positive socio-economic benefits for local populations with an enriching experience for travellers." One of Transat’s greatest ambitions is to become a model of responsibility within the travel industry, which Canadian Affair echoes in the UK.
