“This is very exciting news for our customers in Manchester who can start planning their next trip to rediscover Canada,” said Stephen Gerrard, Air Canada General Manager Sales, U.K. and Ireland. “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.”
“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.”
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 and Edinburgh and Toronto.
