Dubai: Emirates will introduce two additional flights to Toronto, home to thousands of Non Resident Bangladeshis. The new services will complement its existing schedule and providing even more choice and convenience to travellers.

The additional Toronto flights will be introduced on August 18 2018 and will operate on a Saturdays and Sundays. Both flights will be operated by the iconic Emirates A380 with private suites in First Class, lie flat seats in Business Class and spacious seats in Economy Class.

Emirates recently celebrated 10 years of operations in Canada last October, demonstrating the airline’s ongoing commitment to the market. Over the past decade, Emirates introduced new aircraft on the route from a Boeing 777 in October 2007 to the flagship A380 in 2009. The A380 scheduled service increased passenger capacity on the Toronto service by 40% and since then, passenger occupancy on the route has been consistently full, averaging 90% with demand outstripping supply. The additional frequency will fulfil the strong demand on the route and add 65% capacity to the market.

Emirates has established codeshare partnerships in Canada with WestJet and Alaska Airlines, connecting travellers from across its global network to more Canadian cities and vice-versa.

Emirates currently has 104 A380s in service and 58 pending delivery, more than any airline globally. Emirates customers from Toronto will be able to enjoy seamless “A380 to A380” connections to 48 destinations within Emirates’ global network via its hub in Dubai.
