Air Transat Holidays is starting direct London Heathrow to Toronto Pearson International Airport flights in May 2007.
The twice-weekly service will operate on Saturday and Sunday and will be operated by an Air Transat Airbus A310 aircraft with Economy Class and Club Class.
Natalie Roberts, Air Transat Holidays’ business support director, said: “The addition of Heathrow will allow us to offer services from eight UK airports - this is a major step forward for Air Transat.”
The introduction of these flights compliments Transat’s double-daily, direct non-stop services from London Gatwick to Toronto.
