Celebrating new non-stop service to the United Arab Emirates with Air Canada

Flying from YVR to the United Arab Emirates will now be a breeze thanks to Air Canada’s new non-stop service to Dubai International Airport (DXB).

The four-times weekly service marks Western Canada’s first and only non-stop flight to the United Arab Emirates, advancing YVR as a diverse global hub and providing more options for travellers as well as greater opportunities for business, international education, and tourism across our region.

Travellers will arrive in Dubai in approximately 15 hours from YVR and enjoy all the region has to offer as well as increased onward global connections from DXB through Air Canada’s partnership with Emirates.

Every new international flight to YVR creates value for British Columbia, with service to Dubai generating an estimated $30.4 million for the local economy and as many as 63 full-time operations jobs in the province.

We are thrilled to welcome this new route and connect Western Canada with the United Arab Emirates for the benefit of our community and the economy that supports it.

Service to Dubai takes off starting October 28, 2023, with service on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, departing YVR at 9:15 p.m. and arriving to DXB at 12:05 a.m. two days later. Passengers on flights to and from Dubai will fly on a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft with 298 seats.
