Emirates to Launch New Daily Service Between Dubai and Montréal From July 5, 2023
Emirates will launch new daily service between Dubai and Montréal from July 5, 2023, complementing existing service to Toronto, which has been in operation since 2007.
On Monday (April 24, 2023), Emirates announced the launch of new daily service between Dubai (DXB) and Toronto (YUL) starting July 5, 2023. The new route will complement existing daily flagship Airbus A380 flights to Toronto, a route which has been in operation since 2007. The Dubai-Montréal route will operate as EK243/244 with a Boeing 777-300ER configured with eight First Class suites, 42 lie-flat Business Class seats and 204 Economy Class seats. Tickets to Montréal are now available for booking on the carrier’s website, app, or through travel agents.
In Monday’s announcement, Emirates’ Chief Commercial Officer, Adnan Kazim, 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. As a major metropolitan centre and as Canada’s second largest city, we are pleased to add Montréal to our growing global network of over 130 destinations and strengthening our coverage in the Americas to reach 18 points served by our services from Dubai.
“We have been serving customers with passenger and cargo services to Toronto for over 15 years and when we begin services to Montréal in July, customers will have more choice when planning their travel whether for business, leisure, education or for visiting family and friends. We would like to thank the UAE and Canadian authorities for the enhanced agreements which have made this new destination possible. With our expanded reach into the country, we look forward to facilitating new trade lanes, which will bring a host of benefits to Canadian businesses and exporters in addition to promoting tourism into more cities and generating more jobs across all sectors, including those directly serving the aviation industry.”
