Letko Brosseau has been a shareholder of the Company for many years. Our firm has a long-term investment horizon and views the current challenges the Company faces as temporary.

In addition, as Canada completes its national vaccination program against COVID-19, travel will resume.
We are confident that the Company’s strong franchise and capable management team will successfully navigate the Company through this crisis.
We therefore remain committed to Transat and will continue to remain a shareholder.
