Emirates’ Toronto-Dubai service goes daily starting April 20

DUBAI — Emirates is stepping up its frequency with two additional flights per week between Dubai and Toronto.

Starting next week, on April 20, Emirates will offer daily flights on the popular route.

The move follows the expanded air transport agreement between the United Arab Emirates and Canada, announced last week.

Adnan Kazim, Emirates’ Chief Commercial Officer, noted that Emirates has been serving customers between Toronto and Dubai since 2007. “Although the double-decker A380 aircraft has been operating the route since 2009, demand arising from leisure and corporate travellers, diaspora and students has consistently outstripped the allocated capacity,” he said.

“This enhanced agreement represents a turning point for us in our strategy to serve our customers better, by offering more choice and flexibility, and meet pent up demand across our growing network,” he added.

Emirates’ flagship A380 aircraft on the Dubai-Toronto route has capacity for 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 on the route, representing a 40% increase in capacity between its hub city of Dubai and Toronto. 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, said Kazim.
