A NEW low-cost airline is to link Edinburgh with Toronto for the first time since 2009.

Rouge, which has been set up by Air Canada, will begin flying on July 1.

Gordon Dewar, chief executive at Edinburgh Airport, said: “Scotland and Canada should be better served with air links and its fitting that Air Canada’s new airline should launch its first services from Edinburgh. Our airlines tell us that they prosper at Scotland’s busiest airport and I’m confident that Air Canada Rouge will be no different.”
