Air Transat

Lang hospitality and tourism management students took part in a unique, applied-learning field course in the Dominican Republic, where they explored the challenges and elements influencing sustainable tourism – a growing segment within the global industry.

The course was funded by Air Transat, who generously donated the flights and hotel accommodations. Students work on a collaborative, team-based assignment, where they will develop a plan for the travel company to further their sustainable tourism offerings on the island. Students then presented their report to Air Transat stakeholders.
