tephen Gerrard, General Manager Sales, U.K. and Ireland, Air Canada, 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, Manchester Airport, said:

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.

The flag carrier of Canada states that both the flights are timed to optimise connectivity to Air Canada’s North American network, including 46 airports in the United States.

In addition to the upcoming service between Manchester and Toronto, Air Canada presently offers nonstop services from London Heathrow to Toronto, Vancouver, Montréal and Calgary as well as between Dublin and Toronto.

Meanwhile, Air Canada recently placed an order for 26 Airbus A321XLR aircraft.
