WestJet launches new route from Toronto to Glasgow

WestJet’s Toronto to Glasgow service

WestJet has commenced services between Toronto Pearson Airport and Glasgow Airport. The route is operated four times weekly, on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, using WestJet’s latest generation 737 fleet. It provides connectivity for Scottish leisure and business travellers to the capital city of the Ontario province.

“Toronto has always been a popular destination for our passengers, so we were thrilled to welcome WestJet’s new service to Glasgow Airport,” says Ronald Leitch, Operations Director, Glasgow Airport. “Our recovery, and that of the wider aviation industry, is continuing at pace and we are keen to continue to reconnect 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.”

The Toronto route will not only deliver fantastic access to one of North America’s most visited destinations, but it will also provide further onward connectivity across Canada thanks to WestJet’s extensive network from the city’s Toronto Pearson Airport.

Earlier this month WestJet resumed its Halifax route at Glasgow Airport with three services operating per week.

“The launch of service between Toronto and Glasgow marks another milestone in recovery as we rebuild our network and strengthen transatlantic connectivity between our two countries,” says John Weatherill, Chief Commercial Officer, WestJet. “These connections are critical to the recovery of international travel and tourism and we look forward to stimulating business and leisure travel between both destinations as we work towards restoring our network to pre-pandemic levels this summer.”
