PEOPLE in East Renfrewshire will be offered flights to Canada as services are set to return in 2022

It comes after an announcement from the Canadian carrier, WestJet, bringing routes to Halifax, and a direct route to Toronto from Glasgow Airport, for the first time since March last year.

The airline plans to operate four flights per week starting 3 May.

WestJet will also operate a second direct route from Glasgow for the first time with a non-stop service to Toronto, launching on May 21, 2022, with the airline offering four direct flights per week.

Derek Provan, Chief Executive of AGS Airports Ltd, which owns Glasgow Airport, said: “As well as being the first North American carrier to confirm a return to Glasgow with the resumption of the Halifax route, our long-time airline partner WestJet has also chosen to strengthen its partnership with us further by expanding operations in Scotland to now include Toronto.

“Both the Halifax and Toronto routes are crucial steps towards the rebuilding of Glasgow’s long-haul network and re-establishing the airport’s dominant position in the Scotland-Canada market.”
