Air Canada's non-stop services from Edinburgh Airport to Toronto mean Canada is now only a flight away!
The airline is operating six flights a week between Edinburgh and Toronto throughout the summer months from June 1 to October 2.
So it’s good news for those who’ve got the CN Tower or Niagara Falls on their post-pandemic ‘book-it’ list.
And those who want to travel onwards to the US should take note as flights are timed to optimise the airline’s impressive connectivity to North America.
Passengers will travel on a state-of-the-art Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft which has economy, premium economy and Air Canada Signature Class options.
So when can I catch a flight?
Flight AC 807 will depart Edinburgh at 10.15am on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sundays from June 1 to October 2
The same flight will then leave Edinburgh at 10.15am on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sundays between October 3 and October 29

Gordon Dewar, Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport said: “It’s great to see yet another one of our transatlantic routes take off again as Air Canada reconnects Edinburgh and Toronto after two very long years. We know people are eager to reconnect with family and friends but also to get back out there, rediscover the thrill of travel and experience everything that fantastic countries like Scotland and Canada have to offer.”
