The Dubai-based carrier now serves Canada with 14 flights per week
The inaugural Emirates flight has landed in Montréal, marking the start of its scheduled services to its second gateway in Canada.
Flight EK243 arrived at Montréal Pierre Elliot Trudeau International Airport at 08:30 local time on 5 July 2023.
The flight was operated with a Boeing 777 aircraft with executives onboard including chief commercial officer Adnan Kazim; senior vice president of Commercial Operations, Americas, Salem Obaidalla, and vice president Aeropolitical and Industry Affairs, David Broz.
Commenting on the new route, Kazim said: "Complementing our services to Toronto, customers will now have more choice when planning trips to Canada – they now can fly directly to the country’s second largest metropolis whether for business, leisure, education or for visiting family and friends.
"Since we announced our plans to launch direct services to Montréal, we have witnessed healthy bookings from travellers planning trips to Canada from points in the UAE, India, Iran and Lebanon, in addition to many Far East and African countries.
"The strong demand is testament to the quality of our product and travel experience we provide. We look forward to welcoming our customers onboard to experience our "fly better" proposition across all classes."
Emirates’ flights to and from Montréal operate as EK243 and EK244. The daily flight departs Dubai International airport at 02:30, arriving in Montréal at 08:00. The return flight departs Montréal Pierre Elliot Trudeau International Airport at 10:20, arriving in Dubai at 06:30 the next day.
The new daily service to Montréal complements Emirates’ seven weekly services to Toronto and takes the airline’s North American network to 14 destinations and a total of 18 across the Americas.
