Air Canada to resume Manchester-Toronto service

Air Canada is to resume a seasonal service between Manchester and Toronto this summer

Flights will operate five times a week between June 1 and September 30.

The carrier is to deploy Airbus A330-300 aircraft on the route carrying 297 passengers in a three class configuration.

Flights are being timed to allow connectivity to Air Canada’s North American network, including 46 airports in the US.

UK and Ireland general manager sales Stephen Gerrard said: “This is very exciting news for our customers in Manchester who can start planning their next trip to rediscover Canada.

“Our non-stop flight between Manchester and Toronto will provide our customers in the north west of England with a direct link to Canada and beyond. We look forward to welcoming our customers back on board.”

Manchester airport interim managing director Ian Costigan added: “We are thrilled to see Air Canada return as we play our part in reconnecting our region with the world.

“The service to Toronto is fantastic news for companies large and small across the North who do business with Canada, and also for tourism and those visiting friends and family.”

It is also great to see the carrier return with its mainline service, offering a high-quality product with both business and premium economy classes.”
