Air Canada has launched its new four-times-weekly non-stop service between Dubai International (DXB) and its hub at Vancouver International Airport (YVR), marking the airline’s first non-stop flight between the two destinations. This is also the only direct service connecting the Middle East and Western Canada.

The new route complements Air Canada’s year-round daily service between Dubai and Toronto.

The new service between Dubai and Vancouver will be operated with Boeing 787-9 aircraft, with capacity for 298 passengers, with the possibility of choosing between three classes of service: Economy, Premium Economy and Air Canada Signature Class. All flights are timed to optimize connections with Air Canada’s North American network and Emirates’ vast network beyond Dubai. Seats are available to book on, through the Air Canada app, Air Canada contact centers and travel agencies.

“We are excited to now offer not one, but two routes from the most populous city in the United Arab Emirates to our Canadian hubs in Vancouver and Toronto,” said Mary-Jane Lorette, vice president of International Affairs, Networks and Partnerships at Air Canada. “Our new Dubai-Vancouver flights will complement Air Canada’s daily service between Toronto and Dubai, expanding our presence in fast-growing international markets in the Indian subcontinent and Middle East regions. Air Canada’s recent move to Dubai International Terminal 3 underlines the importance of our strategic partnership with Emirates and the importance of our flights between the United Arab Emirates and Canada, providing connections to more than 200 destinations on Air Canada’s networks and Emirates, with the added benefit of traveling on a single ticket. Those who qualify can enjoy access to Emirates’ exclusive Business Class lounges and other central facilities in Dubai before their flight. “Aeroplan members will also be able to take advantage of frequent flyer benefits on all Emirates-operated flights, with access to destinations on six continents.”

“Dubai Airports is pleased to welcome the addition of Vancouver to our ever-growing list of international destinations, made possible by the introduction of Air Canada’s new service,” said Rob Whitehouse, Vice President of Research at Dubai Airports. “With convenient departures from Dubai International (DXB), Air Canada’s new flights provide a seamless link between the Canadian West Coast and Dubai. This expansion complements Air Canada’s existing daily service between DXB and Toronto, and reaffirms our commitment to bringing more guests to Dubai, as well as expanding our growing global connectivity.”

“This inaugural flight between Vancouver and Dubai marks a momentous occasion, connecting two vibrant cities on every continent,” said Consul General of Canada in Dubai and the Northern Emirates, Tracy Reynolds. “Since the signing of the expanded Air Transport Agreement in April, there have been several announcements to expand air connections between the United Arab Emirates and Canada, including additional flights to Toronto and a new flight to Montreal. But this flight is the first route to Canada’s west coast, opening up new opportunities for tourism and business. Direct flights allow direct links between people and cultures. Vancouver and Dubai have a lot to offer each other; This new link will elevate the Canada-UAE relationship and enable more travel, trade and understanding between our two countries, and will especially benefit many of the 45,000 Canadians living in the UAE. “I am honored to be part of these historic Air Canada celebrations.”
