Emirates has announced that it is extending its Air Canada partnership to include flights to and from Montreal.
With this new expansion, Emirates customers will become better connected to 11 Air Canada destinations via Montreal, with an additional 69 access points on an interline basis.
Emirates and Air Canada’s codeshare partnership enables customers of both airlines to enjoy flexibility and connections via Canada to cities such as Halifax, Edmonton, Ottawa and Calgary.
Through Emirates’ services in Montreal and Toronto, passengers from other Canadian cities can easily access destinations across Asia, Africa and the Middle East, via the airline’s hub in Dubai.
Emirates offers daily flights from Dubai International Airport (DXB) to Toronto’s Pearson International Airport (YYZ) services using its flagship Airbus A380 fleet. The airline also offers seven weekly flights between Montreal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport (YUL) and DXB Airport using its fleet of Boeing B777 aircraft.
The interline partnership will allow passengers with itineraries on Emirates’ flights to plan their entire trip on a single ticket. They will be able to take advantage of hassle-free flight benefits including the airline’s baggage allowance, in addition to convenient bag check-through to the final destination.
On April 5, 2023, Canada and the UAE expanded their air transport agreement to allow more flights between the two countries.
According to the Canadian government, the expanded agreement allows 21 flights per week for each country.
This will permit 50% more flights than the maximum number previously possible, facilitate new routes, and give airlines greater flexibility to accommodate changes in market demand.
The UAE is Canada’s largest air transport market in the Middle East.
