As part of Emirates’ continued expansion into Canada and their ongoing partnership with Air Canada, the Dubai-based airline announced another exciting development in the past week.
The airline will boost flights to Toronto from Dubai with the service bumping to daily. As a result, 6,800 seats will be offered per week on the route, which is a 40% increase overall.
Emirates utilities its Airbus A380 on the service through to Toronto. The world’s largest passenger plane is a flagship for the Dubai-based carrier and comes equipped with nearly 500 seats in multiple classes.
Emirates has invested a lot of late in refurbishing its cabin product to bring it closer to competitors. However, while an airline has a sizeable commitment to passenger experience, it has of late come under fire from some on forums over their dropoff in the product.
The two additional flights bring the service to daily, resulting in close to 2,000 seats in both directions being made available.
Business ties between Canada and the UAE have grown significantly over the years and the expanded air services will help to further nurture business and trade. The expansion of air services is also an affirmation of the growing importance of the UAE to Canada’s global connectivity, which we can support through our global network of more than 130 destinations. Together with the relevant authorities, our codeshare and loyalty programme partner Air Canada, and our valued industry partners, we look forward to playing a role in facilitating more tourism and trade opportunities between the two nations.Adnan Kazim, Emirates’ Chief Commercial Officer
Thanks to the codesharing agreements by Emirates, customers can connect on Air Canada’s network to other Canadian cities such as Montreal, Ottawa, Halifax and more. However, according to rumours and people, this won’t be the last announcement for the Middle East and Canadian connection.
