The Canada–Dubai story is an impressive one. Trade, tourism, and investment are all growing at record levels thanks to the Gulf boom and the successful leveraging of Canada's expertise in this region.
Direct air services are a vital component of this type of economic achievement. However, we are currently restricted to just three flights per week between Dubai and Canada. The relationship between Emirates and Canada to date has been encouraging, with services to Toronto thriving since launch, but we are eager to introduce more frequent flights to Canada. At the very least, we would like to offer our business and leisure travelers a daily service to Toronto in the near future. We would also like to expand our services to other Canadian cities, such as Calgary and Vancouver, in the same way that we have grown in other markets, such as Australia, Germany, the United States, and the United Kingdom.
