Air Canada to resume and extend non-stop service between Edinburgh and Toronto

Service to operate up to daily during the summer peak and continue three times weekly into the winter season.

EDINBURGH – Air Canada has announced it will resume and extend its non-stop service between Edinburgh and Toronto. Starting 2 June 2023 and flying up to daily during the summer peak, the extended service will continue three times weekly into the winter season until 8 January 2024, and is currently planned to return in early spring 2024. Air Canada offers more daily flights from the UK to Canada than any other airline.

Air Canada flights from Edinburgh to Toronto 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. All flights are timed to optimise connectivity to Air Canada’s extensive North American network.

“We are pleased to announce the return of our non-stop services from Edinburgh to Toronto,” said Stephen Gerrard, Air Canada General Manager Sales, U.K. and Ireland. “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.”

“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,” said Kate Sherry, Chief Commercial Officer (Aero) at Edinburgh Airport. “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.”
