Air Canada mainline are touching down at Edinburgh Airport to operate 'non-stop' Toronto services for the first time this summer.

The airline will run six flights a week between June 1 and October 2, 2022 and then four times each week from October 3 to October 29, 2022.

Passengers will be able to make journeys on a state-of-the-art Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft with a choice of economy, premium economy and Air Canada Signature Class which features lie-flat seating.

Flights are timed to optimise connectivity to the airline's North American network which includes 46 airports in the U.S.

Edinburgh Airport Aviation Director Kate Sherry said: “We’re delighted that we’ll be reconnecting Scotland and Toronto with Air Canada.

“We all know the benefits that connectivity brings and we’re excited at the opportunities for both countries that this route delivers.”

Stephen Gerrard, Air Canada General Manager Sales, UK and Ireland, said: “This is very exciting news for our customers in Scotland who can start planning their next trip to rediscover Canada.

"Air Canada has a long and proud history of serving Scotland, with our first flight arriving in Prestwick in 1943.

“Our non-stop flight between Edinburgh and Toronto will provide our customers in Scotland with a direct link to Canada and beyond, as countries reopen and border measures ease around the world for vaccinated travellers.”
