Summer seasonal service between Edinburgh and Toronto will be resumed by Air Canada.
Between June 1 and October 2, flights will run six times a week, then four times a week from October 3 to October 29.
Air Canada’s mainline Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft will fly the route for the first time, carrying 255 passengers in a three-class configuration.
The flights are scheduled to provide the best possible connectivity to the carrier’s North American network, which includes 46 airports in the United States.
Stephen Gerrard, UK and Ireland general manager of sales, said: “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.
“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.”
Kate Sherry, the director of aviation at Edinburgh Airport, added: “We’re delighted that we’ll be reconnecting Scotland and Toronto with Air Canada.
“We all know the benefits that connectivity brings and we’re excited at the opportunities for both countries that this route delivers.”
Air Canada now operates nonstop flights between Heathrow and Toronto, Vancouver, Montréal, and Calgary, as well as Dublin and Toronto.
