United Kingdom – Canadian Affair, the UK’s leading tour operator to Canada, is once again set to bring thousands of British visitors to Edmonton, Alberta this summer. With its summer programme already selling, there will be a Canadian Affair weekly service from 2 May increasing to twice weekly in June with flights to/from London Gatwick. Flights will be operated by My Travel Airline on the comfortable 360 seat Airbus A330, one of the largest aircraft in service.

Commenting on the schedule, Kathryn Munro, Communications Manager for Canadian Affair said, ” We are delighted to be returning to Edmonton this year; our fares have never been lower and we hope to carry even more passengers than last year. Canada is a particularly strong destination this year for British consumers; Canadian Immigration and security programs are more customer friendly than the U.S. systems, and the Canadian Dollar is very favourable against the Sterling… offering Brits even more value for their money!”

“Edmonton Airports is extremely pleased to welcome Canadian Affair back to our community,” remarked Scott Clements, President and CEO of Edmonton Airports. “Canadian Affair’s efforts to promote the Alberta Advantage to British tourists enhances our community’s ability to support additional non-stop air services between the Capital Region and the UK.”

Edmonton has always been a strong destination for people visiting family and friends. In addition, Canadian Affair will continue to focus on growing the market further by promoting the beautiful Province of Alberta and the excellent tourism opportunities throughout the Capital Region and Northern Alberta. Canadian Affair is proud to provide a very strong ground product with the best prices for hotels, car hire, tours etc

The tourism impact of this service to the region is significant. This non-stop service will connect thousands of additional European tourists to Edmonton.
