Flights will launch next summer
A Canadian airline is starting twice weekly flights between Toronto and Glasgow.
Sunwing said the service will start next summer following huge demand from customers.
Andrew Dawson. president of tour operations,said: "After last year's successful debut of Sunwing's Summer Trans Atlantic programmes, the number one destination which our travel partners asked us to add for our second year was Glasgow.
"In addition to the strong historic ties between Ontario and Scotland, there is a growing market for a vacation that combines history and old world charm with the modern sophistication of a city stay and Scotland and Glasgow meet those criteria perfectly."
Scottish tourism chiefs hope the link will help increase the number of Canadian tourists - 98,000 last year - which bring around £65 million to the economy.
Mike Cantlay, chairman of VisitScotland, said: "Since the days of the earliest settlers,Canada and Scotland have enjoyed a strong relationship, with more than four million Canadians claiming Scottish ancestry.
"The new Sunwing service will allow even more Canadians to discover, or rediscover, the myriad delights of Scotland."
Fiona Hyslop, Cabinet Secretary for Culture and External Affairs, said: "Canada is one of Scotland's most valuable tourism markets.
"We must build on that to ensure Scotland remains a top destination for international travellers.
"Strong global connections are crucial to our economic prosperity and this new route is a tremendous boost for Glasgow and Scotland as a whole."
