Air Canada will resume its non-stop seasonal flights between Manchester and Toronto from 1 June, with a five-times-weekly service operating until 30 September.
Flights will be operated with three-class Airbus A330-300 aircraft and are timed to optimise connectivity with the airline's North American network.
Services will depart Manchester at 12.15 and arrive in Toronto at 14.55 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays. And the return service will depart Toronto at 21.00 on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, arriving in Manchester at 09.00 the following day.
“We are thrilled to see Air Canada return to Manchester Airport as we play our part in reconnecting our region with the world,” said Ian Costigan, interim managing director at Manchester Airport.
“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 airline also recently announced the resumption of services from Dublin to Vancouver and Montreal and from Edinburgh to Toronto.
