From 1 May 2017, the airline will fly daily from London Gatwick to Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and from 13 June 2017 to Montréal–Trudeau Airport (YUL), via Reykjavik (KEF). Offering the cheapest connection between Europe and Canada, fares for UK holidaymakers start from just £139.99*.
