Glasgow airport to get daily summer Toronto flights back
Glasgow Airport has got back its daily flights to Toronto, Canada next summer - just a day after losing them. Tour operator Canadian Affair has announced that it will increase its service between the two cities to one flight each day next summer.
Canadian Affair had planned to fly to Toronto 5 times a week this summer. Air Canada's pullout, announced yesterday prompted it to announce two extra flights a week from June 27 to September 20, 2006. Zoom Airlines will also raise frequencies on its flights from 2 to 3 a week next summer.
The flights will replace the service previously offered by Air Canada, who flew daily from Glasgow to Toronto from May to October each year, but is pulling out of the route. Air Canada says it has dropped the route because of schedule changes. But the airline faced fierce competition from Canadian Affair, a Glasgow-based firm which offers flights on a Thomas Cook Airlines plane, Zoom and Air Transat.
A spokesman for Canadian Affair, said: 'Our fares have been 50% lower than Air Canada's for a very long time. We are delighted that both Scots and Canadians will no longer be ripped off by high fares.'
