Seasonal service will operate six times a week this summer aboard 787 Dreamliners
Air Canada is expected to resume nonstop seasonal service between Toronto and Edinburgh this summer. The flights will be operated six times a week between June 1 and October 2, and four times a week between October 3 and October 29.
The service will operate on the carrier’s 787-8 Dreamliners, with 225 seats in Economy, Premium Economy and Signature Class, Air Canada’s business class product.
The route was previously served by leisure subsidiary Air Canada Rouge – indeed, it was the carrier’s launch route in 2013.
“Air Canada has a long and proud history of serving Scotland, with our first flight arriving in Prestwick in 1943,” said Stephen Gerrard, Air Canada’s General Manager of Sales, UK & Ireland.
“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.”
The restart of the Edinburgh service is part of the carrier’s expanding summer timetable, which includes restoration of service to 34 international destinations suspended since the start of the pandemic in March 2020.
