Canada and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have agreed to boost the number of flights that connect the two nations. This will encourage trade and tourism while assisting in meeting the demand’s growth. A total of 21 flights each week will result from a 50% increase in the number of flights. Additionally, it will improve the two countries’ international connectivity.
Canada’s Minister of Transport Omar Alghabra made the official announcement. He admitted that for Canada, the UAE is the Middle East country with the largest aviation market.
The inaugural air transport pact between Canada and the UAE was signed in 1999, was increased in 2018, and will now be further improved in April 2023. Omar claims that the extension will improve Canada’s global connectedness, foster business and inter-personal ties, and provide employment for Canadians.
The Minister of International Trade, Export Promotion, Small Business, and Economic Development of Canada, Mary Ng, meantime, emphasised the long-standing ties between the two countries.
Following the arrangement, Emirates has revealed that starting on April 20, it will run daily flights from Dubai to Toronto. According to the press release, the airline would increase its weekly flight schedule by two to accommodate the growing demand for this route.
