Edinburgh Airport Air Canada service to extend into winter months

Air Canada’s Edinburgh to Toronto service will extend into the winter months this year as the airline increases its presence at Edinburgh Airport.

The direct route will return on 2 June 2023 and operate up to daily during the peak summer season, and it will extend into the winter season with three flights per week until 8 January 2024 before it is due to return in early spring.

The Edinburgh to Toronto service will be operated by Air Canada mainline with state-of-the-art Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft. The aircraft features three cabins of service for customers to choose from, including lie-flat seats in Air Canada Signature Class, Premium Economy and Economy Class.

Flights are timed to optimise connectivity to Air Canada's extensive North American network, meaning greater choice for passengers who are looking to connect from Scotland.

Kate Sherry, Chief Commercial Officer (Aero) at Edinburgh Airport said:

"Extending this service into the winter months is very exciting for us and we are really happy to see Air Canada's confidence in the strong Edinburgh market through to January.

"Toronto is a beautiful city all year round and there is so much to 'CN' do there for passengers who want to have that direct link to Canada beyond summer."

 Stephen Gerrard, Air Canada General Manager Sales, U.K. and Ireland said:

“We are pleased to announce the return of our non-stop services from Edinburgh to Toronto.

“Our newly extended service from Edinburgh will not only provide our customers in Scotland with a direct link to Canada during both the summer and winter seasons, but also allow convenient onward travel options across North America. Customers can start planning ahead and book with confidence.”
