You can now fly direct to Dubai from Toronto every day of the week

Direct flights from Toronto to Dubai are launching this month, and you'll soon be able to catch a flight any day of the week on one of the world's best carriers right out of Pearson International Airport.

Emirates announced in a press release that it will be starting daily flights from Toronto to Dubai on April 20, 2023, offering over 6,800 seats per week to accommodate increased demand.

The increase in capacity by nearly 40 per cent is a result of an expanded air transport agreement between the UAE and Canada.

"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," said Adnan Kazim, Emirates' CEO.

"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."

The air service agreement is also expected to boost economic opportunities, tourism, and trade for both nations.

Emirates activated a codeshare partnership with Air Canada last year, which allowed customers to access seamless connectivity when flying to domestic points within Canada via Toronto.

Air Canada tweeted its support of Emirates' increased flight schedules last week, highlighting its mutual benefits to both countries.

The route connecting Toronto and Dubai is populer with travellers heading to or from India, UAE, Bangladesh, Iran, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Sri Lanka.

Emirates' signature double-decker A380 plane can accommodate a remarkable 491 passengers per flight across its economy, business, and first class seats.

The consistently top-ranking airline, which boasts shower spas and lounge bar access for its First Class passengers, doesn't come cheap; for the April 20 - 27 period, a roundtrip economy ticket between Toronto and Dubai will run you between $1655 and $2800 CAD.
