Air Canada will start flying from Vancouver International Airport to Dubai four times weekly on Oct. 28, 2023.
The carrier, which recently added summer service to Amsterdam from Montreal, already flies from Toronto to Dubai and is now broadening service to a region that it says is one of the fastest-growing international markets.
Air Canada will operate the service on a Boeing 787 Dreamliner with three cabins of service including its Signature Class cabin with lie-flat seats, along with premium economy and economy class. Seats are now on sale.
Through codeshare with Emirates, Air Canada will also connect to other destinations across the Middle East from Dubai, Mark Galardo, Senior Vice President, Network Planning and Revenue Management, at Air Canada said.
“Dubai is one of the top destinations worldwide renowned for its extraordinary landmarks, rich culture and entertainment. Vancouver is a top cosmopolitan destination, and this new route offers additional ease to global visitors looking to experience BC's spectacular natural beauty, range of outdoor activities and exciting adventures,” he added.
