Emirates is increasing its frequency with two extra flights per week between Dubai and Toronto in response to the ground-breaking expanded air transport agreement between the United Arab Emirates and Canada. Daily service on the popular route will begin on April 20 in order to meet the high demand for passenger services.
The decision coincides with a considerable improvement in bilateral ties between Canada and the United Arab Emirates, which will result in substantial economic gains for both nations across a wide range of industries and supply chains.
Emirates operates the flagship A380 aircraft on the Dubai-Toronto route, allowing 491 passengers across Economy Class, Business Class and First Class on each flight. With the two additional flights per week, Emirates will offer close to 2,000 additional seats to serve the busy route, representing a 40% increase in capacity between its hub city of Dubai and the Canadian point. The Dubai-Toronto route is highly popular amongst customers from India, UAE, Bangladesh, Iran, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Sri Lanka while the same countries represent top destinations for travellers from Toronto.
Tickets can be booked by visiting www.emirates.com or through preferred travel agents.
Last year, Emirates activated a codeshare partnership with Air Canada, allowing customers to enjoy seamless connectivity when flying to domestic points within Canada via Toronto. Top connections for Emirates customers beyond Toronto include Ottawa, Winnipeg, Halifax, Montreal, Calgary and Edmonton. Air Canada’s customers can travel to destinations across Asia, Africa and the Middle East, in the Emirates’ expansive network of over 130 destinations via its hub in Dubai.
