Air Canada has announced it will resume its non-stop seasonal service between Manchester Airport and the Canadian city of Toronto.
The seasonal service will operate five-times weekly from 1 June – 30 September 2022 using Airbus A330-300 aircraft, accommodating 297 passengers.
Timings of all flights have been planned to optimise connectivity to Air Canada’s extensive North American network, including 46 airports in the United States.
Stephen Gerrard, Air Canada General Manager Sales, UK and Ireland, 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.”
Ian Costigan, Interim Managing Director at Manchester Airport, commented:
“We are thrilled to see Air Canada return to Manchester Airport 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.”
In addition to the upcoming service between Manchester and Toronto, Air Canada currently offers nonstop services from London Heathrow to Toronto, Vancouver, Montréal and Calgary as well as between Dublin and Toronto.
