Canadian Affair invests in Scottish market with 7,000 extra seats for summer 2010

Tour Operator Adds Two More Weekly Flights to Toronto
November 30, 2009

Canadian Affair, Scotland’s largest tour operator to Canada, has today announced that it will add two more direct nonstop weekly flights from Glasgow International Airport to Toronto Pearson International for summer 2010 – giving Glasgow Airport and Scottish passengers an extra 7,000 seats to Canada for the 2010 summer schedule.

The additional capacity will see Canadian Affair’s Glasgow to Toronto service increase to seven flights a week with fares starting from £258 return per person, including taxes.

With weekly flights also operating from Glasgow to both Calgary and to Vancouver the total capacity from Scotland for summer 2010 is now an impressive 51,500 seats.

Kathryn Munro, Communication & Marketing Director, Canadian Affair said: “Canadian Affair is undoubtedly Scotland’s largest operator to Canada.  We have always been a loyal and consistent operator offering the lowest cost flights and holidays, so we are thrilled to announce this additional capacity for summer 2010.  At a time when many other operators and airlines are cutting back, we are certain that this investment will be welcomed with open arms.”

In addition to low-cost flights, Canadian Affair offers child flight discounts – unlike many other operators, has the lowest rates for all its holiday products including hotels, car hire etc and tailor-makes high quality holidays to include a wide-range of iconic Canadian holiday products such as the Rocky Mountaineer Train tours, self-drive holidays,  Alaska cruises, motor-homes, escorted coach tours and much more all at the most competitive prices.

Flights are operated mainly by Thomas Cook Airlines (with local Scottish Crew) on the Boeing 757 which was specifically reconfigured for Canadian Affair offering the most generous economy legroom on a trans-Atlantic flight (seat pitch of 35 inches). The extra capacity for summer is coming from Air Transat, utilizing their wide-body Airbus A310 which has Economy Class seat pitch of 32 and a Club Class cabin to upgrade to. Complimentary meals and hold baggage are included in the price for all flights.
