Departures are scheduled at 2:30 a.m. to arrive at 8:00 a.m., return flights leaving Quebec at 10:20 a.m. to arrive the next day at 6:30 a.m. Emirates competes indirectly with Qatar Airways on this route, which is in addition to serving Toronto Pearson every day in an Airbus A380 this summer (against Air Canada, with which it shares its network and loyalty program).

Three daily flights are now permitted for each country, following the considerable strengthening of relationships between the United Arab Emirates and Canada, both seeking “to deepen economic cooperation and boost benefits for the aviation and tourism sectors, while strengthening trade flows and commercial ties”.
