Economic Benefits of Emirates flights

Our economic impact in Canada

We have shared our ambition to increase flights to Canada which we believe would be a no-cost, no-risk economic stimulus for the Canadian Government.

An economic impact study conducted by InterVISTAS Consulting helps to support this claim. The study examines the impact of the existing three weekly flights between Toronto and Dubai as well as the projected impact on the Canadian economy if we introduced additional flights to Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver.

The findings reveal that the decision by the Federal Government to deny Emirates increased access to Canada is costing the Canadian economy thousands of jobs and hundreds of millions of dollars in new economic activity and tourism.
