Beginning in summer 2016, the new service will operate three times per week from 14 June to 25 September, opening the destination to Scottish business travellers. The route will be operated by a 280-seat, wide-body Boeing 767-300ER aircraft offering a choice of premium and economy cabins.

"We are pleased to offer our Scottish customers even greater access to Toronto and beyond with direct flights from Glasgow next summer," said Margaret Skinner, Air Canada’s director of sales for Europe. "These additional flights complement our existing summer service from Edinburgh, offering convenient connections to destinations across North, Central and South America, as well as the Caribbean, through our Toronto hub."

Francois Bourienne, commercial director at Glasgow Airport, said the decision would further strengthen long-haul connectivity, and enhance the airport’s links with Star Alliance. "Canada has always been a hugely important market for Scotland and passengers will be able to take advantage of Air Canada’s extensive route network throughout the Americas."
