Air Canada rouge increases Edinburgh-Toronto service for Summer 2014

Air Canada rouge, Air Canada’s leisure carrier subsidiary, has announced it will increase its summer non-stop service from Edinburgh Airport to its Toronto hub, Toronto Pearson International Airport, from three to five weekly flights, beginning July 2014. 

The summer 2014 schedule is set to start on 17 May with three services per week, increasing to five per week from July 2014.  Air Canada rouge Edinburgh-Toronto flight, AC1905, will depart Edinburgh at 10:15 a.m. and arrive in Toronto at 12:45 p.m. local time the same day.  The return flight, AC1904, will depart Toronto at 8:40 p.m. and arrive in Edinburgh at 8:30 a.m. the next day (all times local).

Robert Atkinson, Air Canada’s General Manager – Sales UK, Ireland and Northern Europe, said: “Following the success of the Air Canada rouge service this year, we are pleased to announce an increase in our Edinburgh service for summer 2014.  Travellers from Scotland will not only have direct access to our Toronto hub, they will also benefit from onward connections to destinations across North America, the Carribean and Latin America.”

The Edinburgh to Toronto service will be operated with Boeing 767-300ER aircraft, featuring a two-cabin configuration with three customer comfort options including rouge, rouge Plus with preferred seating and additional legroom, and Premium rouge offering both additional space and enhanced services.  By the summer 2014 season, the Air Canada rouge widebody fleet will have grown to consist of eight Boeing 767-300ER aircraft.  All flights offer customers streamed wireless inflight entertainment to their personal electronic devices, standard 110 volt power plugs and USB ports, stylish and modern cabin interiors with innovative new seats, and the ability to earn and redeem Aeroplan miles.

Gordon Dewar, Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport, said: “After a highly successful summer 2013 season, we’re delighted that Air Canada rouge will not only return to Edinburgh next year but will also increase its summer service to Toronto.  Having met with colleagues from Air Canada rouge while at the recent World Routes conference in Las Vegas, we’re delighted to continue our collaboration on this hugely popular route.  We are now looking forward to offering Scottish passengers even more services to Canada and beyond next summer.“
