Emirates Airlines announced the launch of a new daily service from Dubai to Montreal, which will start operating on July 5th. This new destination will complement its passenger services to Toronto, which have been operating since 2007.
The UAE and Canada aim to deepen economic cooperation between the two nations, and stimulate benefits to the aviation and tourism sectors, in addition to enhancing trade flows and commercial links. The daily flights to Montreal will help cater to the huge demand for direct flights between Dubai and Canada, particularly to its two largest metropolitan hubs, and provide more choice for travelers when flying to Canada.
Passengers from Montreal can enjoy the airline’s award-winning services to and through Dubai and connect safely, seamlessly, and efficiently to Emirates’ global network of over 130 destinations in over 70 countries and territories. The daily flights between Dubai and Montreal will operate as EK243/244 with a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in a three-class configuration, offering a premium travel experience across its cabins. Passengers can enjoy Emirates’ award-winning travel experience aboard its wide-body aircraft with 8 First Class suites, 42 lie-flat seats in Business Class, and 304 seats in Economy Class.
Adnan Kazim, Emirates’ Chief Commercial Officer said, “Emirates is excited to launch our second gateway into Canada as we expand our reach in the country with direct services from our hub in Dubai. We have been serving customers with passenger and cargo services to Toronto for over 15 years and when we begin services to Montreal in July, customers will have more choice when planning their travel whether for business, leisure, education or for visiting family and friends.”
Emirates and Air Canada customers have access to an expansive network of destinations thanks to the codeshare partnership between the two airlines. In addition to over 130 destinations that Emirates flies to, its customers currently have access to 19 Canadian destinations beyond Toronto through the partnership, while Air Canada customers are able to fly on Emirates to Dubai and access 17 cities in Africa, the Indian Subcontinent, Middle East, and Far East.
Montréal, the largest city in Quebec and the second largest in Canada, is also known as the capital of French Canada and the nation’s culture capital. The city is famous for its festivals and vibrant food and arts culture, while also being an important center of commerce, tourism, and design and business hub for industries including aerospace, transport, finance, pharmaceuticals, and technology.
With the addition of Montreal to its expansive network, Emirates will provide a choice of two destinations for travelers between Canada and the UAE. The airline’s network will expand to 18 points across the Americas, including Canada, the US, Mexico, Brazil, and Argentina.
