Those transferring between the partnering airlines will have the convenience of remaining in the same terminal
Air Canada and Emirates today announced a customer service milestone in their strategic partnership with the move of Air Canada’s operations to Dubai International’s (DXB) flagship Terminal 3 from 26 July 2023.
Customers transiting between the Americas on Air Canada and the Middle East, Indian subcontinent, Southeast Asia and Africa on Emirates will enjoy a more seamless journey with the convenience of remaining in the same terminal.
Emirates chief commercial officer Adnan Kazim said: "Co-locating at T3 means Air Canada customers can enjoy a smooth connection experience when transiting in Dubai on to Emirates’ global network."
Since November 2022, the carriers have expanded their codeshare relationship to 42 routes, enhanced their underlying interline agreement, developed a reciprocal loyalty partnership for customers to earn and redeem points, enhanced co-operation between their cargo businesses and increased capacity into their respective hubs.
Air Canada has also developed a partnership with Emirates’ sister-airline, Flydubai.
Aeroplan and Skywards members are able to collect and redeem points when travelling with Air Canada or Emirates, and eligible customers have access to priority check-in, priority boarding and airport lounges.
