Emirates has expanded its codeshare partnership with Air Canada to include flights to and from Montréal, following the launch of services to Québec’s largest city in July.
Emirates customers can plan travel between 11 domestic points beyond Montréal and destinations on Emirates’ network, utilising the services of both airlines on a single ticket.
Apart from the 11 destinations that can be accessed by way of the codeshare via Montréal, an additional 69 points are accessible from the gateway on an interline basis.
The codeshare partnership between Emirates and Air Canada enables customers to seamless connections via Canada’s two largest cities to points such as Halifax, Edmonton, Ottawa and Calgary.
From Toronto, Emirates’ customers can travel to 19 points whilst enjoying codeshare benefits, and an extra 100 by way of an interline arrangement.
Customers travelling from Canadian cities can also connect to Emirates’ services in Montréal or Toronto to travel to destinations across Asia, Africa and the Middle East, via the airline’s hub in Dubai.
On its flights to and from Toronto, Emirates offers daily services to Dubai with its flagship A380 aircraft. This month, the airline is celebrating the 15th anniversary of its A380 superjumbo operations.
Apart from Toronto in Canada, Emirates also operates seven weekly flights between Montréal and Dubai, utilising its other widebody aircraft – the Boeing 777. Its first flight to Montréal departed from Dubai on July 5.
Travellers with itineraries on Emirates’ flights can plan their entire trip on a single-ticket and take advantage of benefits including the airline’s baggage allowance, in addition to convenient bag check-through to the final destination.
Also, members of Emirates’ frequent flyer programme, Emirates Skywards, can earn and redeem miles on flights of both airlines.
