Air Canada has launched a groundbreaking four-times weekly direct route between Dubai International Airport (DXB) and Vancouver International Airport (YVR), marking their inaugural non-stop connection from the Middle East to Western Canada.
This flight has a duration of 15 hours, departing at 9:15 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, and arriving in the United Arab Emirates at 12:05 a.m. two days later, according to an airport news release.
In a statement, Air Canada’s Mark Galardo expressed, “Both cities are renowned worldwide for their extraordinary landmarks, rich culture, entertainment, and leisure adventures. This route connects two major global hub airports, providing customers with exceptional travel options and convenience.”
The move to Dubai International Terminal 3 solidifies the partnership between Air Canada and Emirates, granting passengers access to over 200 destinations through a single ticket. Eligible travelers can also enjoy Emirates’ Business Class Lounges, while Aeroplan Members receive benefits on Emirates-operated flights.
The service will be operated using a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner with 298 seats.
