Emirates and Etihad both have increased flights to Toronto as the United Arab Emirates and Canada recently expanded their bilateral air services agreement. As part of this updated agreement, airlines from both sides can operate 21-weekly flights between the two countries.

We thank the government and civil aviation authorities for laying the groundwork for us to strengthen the air links between our two countries, which are essential for tourism, trade and bilateral relations.

added Arik De.

Etihad will this year mark 18 years since it began serving Toronto in October 2005. The carrier has an interline agreement with WestJet and a codeshare with Air Canada which allow passengers to benefit from east connectivity from Toronto to more than 15 destinations.

Both Emirates and Etihad will operate 14-weekly flights into Toronto combined. In addition, Air Canada operates a daily flight between Toronto and Dubai. This will be the highest ever flights on offer in a single week on offer between the two countries.
