The increase in flights represents an additional 60% capacity
Air Canada is expanding its service between Toronto and Dubai with flights initially increasing from four to five times weekly from 31 October 2022.
The airline will further increase its service between the cities from five to six times weekly from 8 January 2023 and will then go daily from 26 March 2023.
A Boeing 777-300ER aircraft will replace the current Boeing 787-9 aircraft on the route, accommodating 400 passengers, with a choice of three classes of service.
Air Canada country manager UAE Deepu Cyriac said: “We are excited to announce this increase in our services between Dubai and Toronto. These additional frequencies will provide even more flight options for our customers in the UAE and the possibility to connect via our Toronto hub to 69 onward destinations across the Americas.”
Air Canada and Emirates recently announced the launch of their codeshare cooperation to extend global networks and enhance the customer experience. The new partnership will offer customers connectivity to 46 destinations, spanning three continents.
As well as a reciprocal frequent flyer offering, eligible passengers will also soon be able to take advantage of reciprocal lounge access, along with select benefits for Aeroplan Elite and Skywards members when travelling on the partner airline.
