Emirates today revealed that, beginning on July 5, it will begin a new daily service from Dubai to Montréal. Emirates now has a second Canadian gateway in Montréal, adding to its passenger flights to Toronto, which have been running to the provincial capital of Ontario since 2007.

The opening of services to Montréal coincides with the UAE and Canada’s efforts to expand their economic collaboration, foster positive effects on the aviation and tourism industries, as well as improve trade and commercial ties. In addition to giving travellers more options when travelling to Canada, the daily flights to the new location will assist meet the enormous demand for direct flights between Dubai and Canada, notably to its two main metropolitan centres.

Aboard Emirates’ wide-body aircraft, which have 304 seats in Economy Class, 42 lie-flat seats in Business Class, and 8 First Class suites, passengers may experience the airline’s renowned travel offerings.
