An event to highlight Air Canada’s new, direct flight from Toronto to Shannon took place in downtown Toronto. The event, organised by Tourism Ireland, was attended by HE Jim Kelly, Ambassador of Ireland to Canada; around 100 leading Canadian travel journalists and travel agents; as well as senior representatives of Air Canada and Shannon Airport. The four-times weekly flight begins in June.

 

Dana Welch, Tourism Ireland’s Manager Canada, said: “We’re really excited about the new Air Canada service from Toronto to Shannon. It’s good news for tourism to the West of Ireland – providing Canadian holidaymakers with easier than ever access to the Wild Atlantic Way. 2017 was the best year ever for Irish tourism from Canada – with visitor numbers increasing by around +12% over 2016. We look forward to working closely with Air Canada and Shannon Airport, to maximise the promotion of this new flight and maintain the strong growth momentum.”
