Air Canada Launching Vancouver To Dubai Flights

Air Canada announced non-stop flights from YVR to Dubai as part of a global expansion. Starting October 28, 2023, the airline will launch a new four-times-weekly service using its Dreamliner aircraft.

Air Canada will expand its position in fast-growing foreign markets by adding extra flights to its daily service between Toronto (YYZ) and Dubai. 

We are thrilled to provide the sole non-stop service between Vancouver and Dubai, two exciting worldwide destinations. Dubai's monuments, culture, and entertainment make it a popular destination.

According to Air Canada's SVP of Network Planning and Revenue Management, our Vancouver-Dubai flights will link to destinations in the Middle East, Indian subcontinent, and

East Africa in Dubai, in collaboration with our codeshare and frequent flyer partner Emirates. 

The new transit connection from Dubai will enhance tourists' experience in British Columbia, according to the Minister of transit and Infrastructure.  

Air Canada's international onboard services include top culinary skills from the country's notable chefs. Among them are award-winning Vancouver chefs David Hawksworth and

Vikram Vij, and famous Montreal chefs Antonio Park and Jérôme Ferrer. Leading Canadian sommelier Véronique Rivest selected premium wines to complement the meal. 

The Vancouver-Dubai flights will use Boeing 787 Dreamliners featuring Signature Class (with lie-flat seats), Premium Economy, and Economy Class. Tickets may be bought via, the Air Canada app, Air Canada contact centers, and travel brokers. 

Flight itineraries are designed for easy connections to and from Alberta, B.C., and the western U.S. via Air Canada's hub at YVR.
