Air Canada’s Edinburgh-Toronto service will extend into the winter months for the first time.

Holidaymakers will be able to jet off to the Great White North daily from this summer and then three times a week in winter months, as Air Canada has announced it will resume and extend its non-stop service between Edinburgh and Toronto.

The service could fly daily during the summer peak season starting from June 2 and will then fly three times a week from October 23 – Jan 24. It's currently planned to resume in early spring 2024. Air Canada offers more daily flights from the UK to Canada than any other airline.

Stephen Gerrard, Air Canada general manager of sales in the UK and Ireland, said: “We are pleased to announce the return of our non-stop services from Edinburgh to Toronto. 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.”

Kate Sherry, chief commercial officer (Aero) at Edinburgh Airport said: “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. Toronto is a beautiful city all year round and there is so much to do there for passengers who want to have that direct link to Canada beyond summer.”
