Glasgow Airport opens new route to Toronto

WestJet will offer the service four times a week.

Scotland’s Glasgow Airport has launched a new route to Toronto, Canada, with the carrier WestJet.

The airline will offer the service four times a week.

The service will run between Toronto Pearson Airport and Glasgow Airport, and be available on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

The Glasgow to Toronto service will take off at 10:30am, while the Toronto to Glasgow service will depart at 9:40pm local time.

Recently, the airline also resumed the Halifax route at Glasgow Airport, running three services on a weekly basis.

Both routes use the carrier’s latest generation Boeing 737 fleet.

This fleet is said to be 40% quieter compared with earlier planes, as well as being more fuel efficient.

Glasgow operations director Ronald Leitch said: “Toronto has always been a popular destination for our passengers, so we were thrilled to welcome WestJet’s new service to Glasgow Airport.

“Our recovery, and that of the wider aviation industry, is continuing at pace and we are keen to continue to re-connect with our North American cousins after what has been a long absence.

“As a gateway to Scotland, we are also keen to welcome, once again, the tens of thousands of Canadians who travel through Glasgow Airport each year to explore all our country has to offer.”

Last year, Glasgow Airport started a trial of a zero-emission bus to transport travellers between the terminal and aeroplanes parked at distant stands.
