Etihad Airways Increases Frequency Between Abu Dhabi and Canada
Etihad Airways will increase its flights from Abu Dhabi to Canada’s largest city, Toronto, from three to five weekly services, effective 28 October 2018.
The flights will be operated by a two-class Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, featuring 40 seats in Business Class and 340 in Economy Class.
The additional frequencies will also benefit Etihad Cargo customers who can expect greater schedule flexibility and a 60 per cent cargo capacity increase on the route.
Etihad Airways commenced services to Toronto in 2005, and since then the route has proved very successful for the airline, recording consistently strong demand to and from both cities.
About 45,000 Canadians live in the UAE, with over 150 Canadian companies registered across the country. Citizens of both countries now enjoy visa-free entry for stays of up to six months.
Etihad has a codeshare deal with Air Canada, with the Canadian flag carrier placing its ‘AC’ code on Etihad services from Toronto to Abu Dhabi and from London Heathrow to Abu Dhabi.
Etihad also places its ‘EY’ code on Air Canada’s services from Toronto to points across Canada including Montreal, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, St.Johns, Halifax, Regina, and Fort McMurray.
