Air Canada announced new seasonal non-stop flights from Glasgow Airport to its Toronto hub, Toronto Pearson, beginning in summer 2016.
The route will be operated by Air Canada rouge, its leisure carrier, and provide Scottish customers with convenient options when travelling to Canada for leisure or business.
The new service between the two cities will operate three times per week from 14 June to 25 September 2016.
Air Canada rouge is designed to offer exceptional customer service, a relaxed in-flight environment and a host of Air Canada benefits.
The Glasgow-Toronto route will be operated by 280-seat wide-body Boeing 767-300ER aircraft offering a choice of premium and economy cabins.
Premium rouge customers can benefit from an enhanced meal service with carefully selected wines and beverages on fine dish- and glassware as well as a hot towel and snack service.
Customers seated in rouge and rouge Plus will be served a complimentary hot meal with a selection of non-alcoholic beverages.
Air Canada rouge flights offer customers streamed wireless inflight entertainment to their own personal electronic devices, stylish and modern cabin interiors with innovative new seats, and the ability to earn and redeem Aeroplan miles.
“We are pleased to offer our Scottish customers even greater access to Toronto and beyond with direct flights from Glasgow next summer,” said Margaret Skinner, Air Canada director, sales - Europe.
“These additional flights complement our existing summer service from Edinburgh, offering convenient connections to destinations across North, Central and South America as well as the Caribbean through our Toronto hub.”
