Air Canada sets out summer timetable for UK travellers

Air Canada has announced that it will offer more daily flights from the UK to Canada than any other airline, with up to 88 non-stop services per week to eight major Canadian cities scheduled for summer 2015.

From London Heathrow, Air Canada will operate direct flights to Toronto four times a day, daily to Montréal, Vancouver, Calgary, Halifax, Ottawa and St. John’s, and three times per week to Edmonton.

The airline is also introducing a second service to Calgary operating four times a week, starting June 2nd.

Air Canada rouge, Air Canada’s leisure airline, will again operate seasonal non-stop services with up to five flights a week from Edinburgh (June 17th-October 14th) and up to six flights a week from Manchester (June 29th -September 30th) to Toronto this summer.

Air Canada’s leisure airline is designed to offer exceptional customer service, a relaxed in-flight environment and a host of Air Canada benefits.


“With the current favourable exchange rate, it has never been a better time for UK travellers to fly to Canada.

“This combined with the frequency of flights we operate non-stop to eight major Canadian cities this summer, provides great choice and value for our customers in the UK,” said Robert Atkinson, general manager UK, Ireland and Northern Europe, Air Canada.

“As a global carrier, we are able to offer customers convenient onward connections to destinations across the Americas from our Toronto hub.”

From Air Canada’s Toronto hub at Toronto Pearson International Airport, UK travellers can take advantage of convenient onward connections to destinations in North, Central and South America and the Caribbean. 

UK customers travelling with Air Canada to the US are no longer required to pick up their bags when transiting in Toronto and Montréal.

They can also pre-clear US Customs and Immigration, making for a seamless travel experience.
