Has Air Transat Discontinued Winnipeg to Manzanillo...??

Can't find YWG to ZLO on Redtag.ca or on the Air Transat site......no flights, no packages, as of today.....Saskatoon is still on the board, but Winnipeg is gone....

For us, after they cranked up the price in Wyndham in October, we bailed on going to Manzanillo. Subsequent inquiries after the mysterious disappearance of Manzanillo on Red Tag and Expedia advised us that we would have to spend the night in Calgary on the way back if we wanted to go. We are instead going to Puerto Vallarta.

Love Manzanillo but...don't love it enough to pay outrageous prices and have to stay overnight travelling there .We found the differences in ZLO vs PVR to weigh in favour of ZLO but not for that kind of money .\

West Jet vacations and Transat were both about $1400 bux more than Sunwings prices to a comparable resort in PVR .$1400 is way too much to pay in my humble opinion .Save the money for next years trip .

West Jet is way overpriced as is Transat hopefully Signature/Sunwing remains on course with decent pricing for two week trips.

why would anyone pay 1400 dollars more be forced to change planes and stay overnight when they can save money fly direct non stop to a similar property in Mexico , the people have spoken and the flight to ZLO is now gone from Winnipeg , I will miss going to ZLO but am not willing ti=o pay those prices for the privilege of going .

That's really terrible. Are they giving you any option to get your money back?

Huh - on Friday when I looked at their website, if you selected Winnipeg as your "Leaving From" city, Manzanillo didn't even appear on the list of potential "Flying To" destinations. I just looked now, and it's back there as a "Flying To" destination, though there are no vacations populated on it yet.

I wonder if they're going to have a reprise of a couple of years ago, where they cancelled direct flights from Winnipeg and replaced them with ones with layovers in Saskatoon.

Well, from what I've seen here on TA, there weren't many people from Winnipeg who booked with Transat this year......Let's see; Surge m.......marblesmom........jubilees.......that makes 3 out of YWG......so lets multiply that by 10 for the unknown lurkers......call it 30.....and factor in an error of 40% just for good measure......That would make only 50 vaction packages out of YWG for the ENTIRE SEASON.......And you wonder why Transat pulled the plug on Winnipeg..?? The travel agent at Ixtapa travel told me that sales for YWG to ZLO were virtually non-existent........

As FUBOB mentioned, we are not about to pay 700 dollars more per person for the "privilege" of flying into and out of Saskatoon on both legs of the trip......we'll just pass on that venture, thank you very much....

If the prices are ok, we will be back to Manzanillo. I'd like to try Wyndham at Isla Navidad. Glad we didn't book and get cancelled. I'd be pissed.

They (AT) should be making alternate arrangements for you, and offering it at a discount for the inconvenience if your trip was cancelled. If I lost a day through added travel, I'd want a hefty discount.

Well, to be fair, there are likely lots of folks that go south who don't even know tripadvisor exists, or that this forum exists. But I do totally agree - any Winnipeggers who don't want to deal with a layover, shouldn't!

To be honest, more than any other factor, it was our in-flight experiences with Transat that made us start finding alternative ways to get to Manzanillo, even though Transat flights to ZLO are pretty much always direct from Saskatoon. On the ground, the service is wonderful. In the air, it was somewhat less so, though I've probably complained about it enough already. :)
