I love vacations, who doesn't - with new sights to explore, delicious food and exciting adventures the time always seems to fly by. So why wait until you arrive at your destination for your holiday to start? At Air Canada rouge we take service to a new level at 35,000 feet, making every flight a memorable start and end to your trip.

With an Air Canada rouge crew trained in customer service excellence by the Disney Institute, our flight attendants go the extra mile to make your onboard experience special, whether you’re celebrating a milestone or travelling with children. From face painting to giving out pin buttons celebrating birthdays or first flights, we want everyone onboard our aircraft to feel welcome and relaxed.

From 14 June to 25 September 2016, Air Canada rouge will fly three times weekly between Glasgow Airport and Toronto Pearson International Airport. It takes 7 hours 25 minutes to reach Toronto, so why not treat yourself to our Premium Economy service which offers more spacious seats with greater recline and legroom. Extra perks include complimentary premium meals, expertly selected wines and a generous baggage allowance.

Whether you’re a movie buff or music lover, at Air Canada rouge we have entertainment in the skies covered with something for everyone. Customers in all cabins can access player, Air Canada rouge’s inflight entertainment system, allowing wireless streaming of films, TV series, music and more directly to personal mobile phones, iPads and laptops (app must be downloaded prior to travel).

Once you arrive in Toronto, take the new UP Express train service and speed between the airport and downtown Union Station in just 25 minutes. North America’s fourth largest city has a lot to offer: From the iconic CN Tower and Casa Loma, galleries and museums, to fine restaurants and markets that take you on a culinary journey around the world.

And why not go on a shopping spree to take advantage of the current favourable exchange rate. Whether you go down to the underground PATH system connecting over 1,200 shops and restaurants, wander the eclectic and bohemian Kensington Market for vintage finds and organic food or visit Hudson Bay, Canada’s oldest department store, there are plenty of opportunities to fill your suitcase with goodies.

So, if you’re fed up of the winter blues and longing for an exciting summer city break, book direct flights from Glasgow Airport to Toronto Pearson at or call 0871 220 1111.
