Virgin Atlantic has also announced it will return to Canada with the first routes to the country in more than 10 years.

A new route between London Heathrow and Toronto Pearson International Airport will begin next year.

Flights will be available from £490 per person and the daily service will run from March 30, 2025 meaning Britons will be able to enjoy Toronto or go further afield and explore Canada.

Toronto has something for everyone, “whether you’re a culture connoisseur, foodie or on a family adventure,” according to Destination Toronto.

It added: “Delve into diverse neighbourhoods, uncover hidden gems and experience iconic landmarks for a personalised and unforgettable visit.”

This comes as British Airways launches a new route to Lapland that is perfect for a winter or Christmas getaway this year.

British Airways has just added the Finland region to its 200-plus destinations with flights beginning on December 3, 2024.

These will run twice a week from London Gatwick to Ivalo. The airline states: “British Airways has added Lapland to its list, and checked it twice, as it prepares to launch new flights to Santa Claus’s home region this winter.

“Ivalo is a village on the Ivalo River in Lapland, located in the Arctic Circle. It welcomes visitors from all over the world, particularly during the winter months, to enjoy cold weather and Christmas activities.
