“This is very exciting news for our customers in Scotland who can start planning their next trip to rediscover Canada. 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 General Manager Sales, U.K. and 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.”

“We’re delighted that we’ll be reconnecting Scotland and Toronto with Air Canada,” said Kate Sherry, Edinburgh Airport Aviation Director. “We all know the benefits that connectivity brings and we’re excited at the opportunities for both countries that this route delivers.”
