A NEW low-cost, daily long-haul connection between London Stansted Airport and Canada's biggest city Toronto by Flyglobespan was announced last week.

Also, SunExpress announced it is expanding its UK network with a new direct service to Izmir, Turkey, with onward connections to the newly emerging tourist market of Ercan in Northern Cyprus.

Nick Barton, BAA Stansted business development and planning director, said: "Expansion of long-haul is firmly on our agenda so we're delighted to see Flyglobespan start long-haul daily flights linking Stansted to Toronto's Hamilton Airport in Canada."

"We've already seen great success with the development of Stansted's American connections to New York, Las Vegas and Washington; and future links to Asia, Dubai and India are firmly in our sights. We're in on-going discussions with a number of airlines keen to tap into the long-haul opportunities here at Stansted, the growth of which I'm sure will build on the great success we've achieved in developing our European network.

"Northern Cyprus is one of Europe's newly emerging tourist markets; and with current restrictions meaning all flights must connect via mainland Turkey, it's great news that Ercan now has a low-cost link from the UK with SunExpress services from Stansted.
