New Glasgow-Toronto air link established

A new air link between Glasgow and Toronto has been established by Canadian carrier WestJet.

Flights will run four times a week on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

The service follows on from the airline resuming flights to Halifax three times a week earlier this month.

Both routes will be flown by latest generation Boeing 737 aircraft, claimed to be 40% quieter than the previous types.

WestJet chief commercial officer John Weatherill said: “The launch of service between Toronto and Glasgow, marks another milestone in recovery as we rebuild our network and strengthen transatlantic connectivity between our two countries.

“These connections are critical to the recovery of international travel and tourism and we look forward to stimulating business and leisure travel between both destinations as we work towards restoring our network to pre-pandemic levels this summer.”
