- Weekly Exeter - Toronto service with flights from £129 one-way -
October 19, 2009

Canadian Affair, the UK’s largest tour operator to Canada, has announced today that it will offer flights from Exeter again in Summer 2010 with Air Transat – the airline’s 17th successive year of flights from the airport.

The carrier, which is popular with travellers throughout the South West for its services direct from the region to Canada, will offer a weekly flight from Exeter to Toronto departing every Wednesday.

The weekly service will operate from 19th May – 29th September, 2010 with flights from just £129 one-way (incl. taxes and charges).

A six-night holiday in Toronto costs from just £419 per person, based on Economy Class flights from Exeter to Toronto, and six nights at the 3-star Days Hotel in downtown Toronto (based on two sharing, room only).

Kathryn Munro, Communication & Marketing Director at Canadian Affair, says: “Travellers from the South West have consistently told us that they prefer our service direct from Exeter, rather than having to travel to airports further afield. We work very hard to ensure that we always offer great value prices, and wide range of flight and holiday options for people to travel from their doorstep.”

Exeter Airport’s Managing Director, Jamie Christon said; “The confirmation that Canadian Affair will continue these flights is wonderful news for the airport and the travellers of the region who have expressed a great deal of interest in the route for 2010. The seventeenth year with Air Transat takes our total for the Toronto link to twenty two and this clearly demonstrates that Exeter can support a long haul route. We are looking forward to the familiar sight of the A310 aircraft’s return next summer and seeing our South West passengers jetting off to a breathtaking part of the world.”

Flights will be operated by an Air Transat wide-bodied Airbus A310 aircraft. Passengers will have choice of two classes, with a generous seat pitch of 32 inches in Economy Class along with luxury leather seats, complimentary meals, soft drinks, and a hold baggage allowance of 20kgs.

Passengers can also upgrade to Club Class and enjoy a host of benefits such as greater legroom, extra wide seats, a four-course meal with choice of wines, a complimentary bar service, dedicated check-in, increased baggage allowances and much more.

In addition to flights, Canadian Affair also specialises in high quality, tailor-made holidays to Canada. A choice of over 100 hotels are available throughout Canada, plus car hire with free upgrades, train tours, self-drive holidays, motor-homes and much more, all at unbeatable prices.
