A310s will be ending service on April 27th.   This means that A300s/A310s are almost entirely extinct in the Passenger Market.

It seems like at least 3 of the A310’s are going to Iran to join Mahan Air. As it shows Mahan is  getting 3

The A310 fleet appears to now be down to 5 aircraft.  C-GLAT hasn't flown a commerical flight since the end of December and was ferried to Mirabel on the 7th.

may be off topic but could Airbus salvage parts from the Transat A310's possibly for the A220 at Mirabel?

And what parts do you want to salvage from an Airbus to go into a Bombardier?  Coffee pot?

The aircraft will be salvaged for scrap metal or useful parts for similar aircraft in the secondary market or for the other Air Transat A310s.

I was recently able to check out both the high and low density seating configuration in the A330-200 between YYZ and CUN. It was interesting to observe the comfort levels for the passengers. I found it significantly better in the low density as we weren’t so crammed in.

Makes sense they already have A310's in their fleet. I would expect them to use the Air Transat ones for service and part out their own

Air Transat is planning to resume flying on July 23.

Montreal-based airline Air Transat is planning to start flying again on July 23, after a hiatus of almost four months because of COVID-19.

The airline says it is planning to slowly return to normal, offering flights to 23 destinations across Europe, the Caribbean, the U.S. and Canada starting on that date.

"This is a first step towards getting healthy operations back on track, from both a business and financial perspective," CEO Jean-Marc Eustache said.

While the move represents the airline's first tentative steps at getting back to normal, it's clear it won't be business as usual.

Transat's network of travel agencies will be adhering to physical distancing requirements by limiting appointments to one customer at a time, and Plexiglas partitions will be installed at travel agents' desks.

 

The CBC article also has an update on the Air Canada takeover of Air Transat.

According to the website they currently have Boeing 737-700's in their fleet.

https://www.airtransat.com/en-CA/travel-information/our-fleet/boeing-737-700

It's likely left-over information they didn't remove after the 2019 winter travel season. Air Transat doesn't own 737-700s but have leased some from ASL Airlines France. Before COVID, it was quite common for Air Transat to work with European airliners to temporarily lease airframes for the busier winter vacation travel season. Sunwing does the same thing.

They do have 737-800s, but most have been removed from the fleet during 2020, notably with the A321s coming in.

According to planespotters.net the 737-800 are being removed from the fleet. The A321 fleet is partially in service, especially the brand new A321neoLRs

Yes they have  one 737-800 left. I doubt that one will be around much longer.
