Scots will be able to fly seven days a week to Toronto for next summer.
Canadian airline WestJet has made the decision to operate from both Scottish airports, Edinburgh on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday; Glasgow Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. All flights will be on a Boeing 737 MAX.
Scottish Minister for Transport Graeme Dey praised WestJet and both airports in separate statements: “It is encouraging to see airlines develop their connectivity with Scotland at this time. Canada is an important market for Scotland and I am sure this route [meaning both] will be welcomed by both business travellers and tourists in both our countries. I also welcome the use of WestJet’s latest generation aircraft that will help minimise carbon emissions.
The Canadian carrier will also reinstate the popular Halifax route from Glasgow four times weekly in May. It is also keen to point out that through Pearson International Airport, Toronto, it serves over 30 Canadian destinations.
