Air Canada has announced that its seasonal flights between Edinburgh and Toronto will return for 2022.

The service will operate:

  • six times weekly from 1st June to 2nd October
  • four times weekly from 3rd October to 29th October
Air Canada to relaunch Edinburgh to Toronto route

It will use a modern Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner with three cabins – Economy, Premium Economy and what Air Canada calls ‘Signature Class’ with lie-flat beds.

As well as being convenient for connections to elsewhere in Canada, the airline also connects to 46 US cities from Toronto.

From Heathrow, Air Canada is currently operating flights to Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal and Calgary.

Air Canada is a member of Star Alliance. Any redemption flights would need miles from a Star Alliance frequent flyer programme such as Lufthansa Miles & More or Singapore Airline Krisflyer, or of course Air Canada’s own Aeroplan. You can earn Aeroplan miles indirectly from UK credit cards as this HfP guide explains.

    Argh missed this! Forgot to set an alarm! Last time the offer ran I edited an item my father had listed to £300 (with an ebay 80% fee discount offer) and did the same to an item I was selling and we bought the item from each other. The £300 transaction cost us about £7.50 in fees each. This deal today would have netted me 10k avois for £15. Darn it!

    Just had a text from Barclaycard:

    “Thanks for choosing our new Avios Plus card. We know you may have seen some issues in the first few weeks and we’re very sorry about that. We’ll be adding 5000 extra Avios points to your BA Executive Club account within the next 6 weeks. Thanks for bearing with us. Your Barclaycard Team”

    Compared to some folk my issues have been fairly limited (no Apple Pay being the biggest bugbear), so can’t complain about a free 5000 points. 🙂

    I’ve never known a time when so many avios are being earned so easily or being given away with such impunity. Is there something a foot to encourage customers to fly BA again.

    WestJet also flying direct to YYZ from EDI. Flights departing within 10 minutes of each other.
