Emirates celebrates 10 years in Toronto

Posted 31 October 2017 · Add Comment

Emirates is celebrating ten years in Canada. Since the inaugural flight in October 2007, Emirates has carried over 1.2 million passengers through its Toronto Dubai route.

In Canada, Emirates’ established codeshare partnerships with WestJet and Alaska Airlines enable it to connect travellers from across its global network to more Canadian cities, and vice versa. Hitting the 10 year milestone in Canada shows Emirates’ continued commitment to its operations in the country.

“We’re proud to be celebrating 10 years of operations in Canada,” said Hubert Frach, Divisional Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations West at Emirates. “We started with a Boeing 777 aircraft flying three times a week. By June 2009, we had started operating with the Airbus A380 and increased our passenger capacity by 40 per cent across Canada, which illustrates the strong demand from customers and the market.”

The majority of Canadian passengers are travelling to Dubai, the Middle East and the South Asia subcontinent, with leisure traffic to the Maldives and Mauritius. Emirates is currently the only airline operating the A380 out of Toronto and takes great pride in providing best-in-class service for both business and leisure passengers. In Canada, with stopovers permitted on all Emirates fares and great travel packages, Dubai continues to be a prime holiday destination.

Frach added: “Over the past decade we’ve witnessed an increasing interest in Dubai. In the latest seat sale results, Dubai was the top destination sold in Canada. Dubai offers many attractions to cater to visitors with different interests, and has a growing selection of cruise, family and luxury providers.”
