Air Canada is expanding its international network with the addition of new, non-stop flights from its hub at Vancouver International Airport (YVR) to Dubai

The new route will operate four times weekly beginning Oct. 28, 2023 onboard Air Canada's flagship Dreamliner fleet. 

The carrier's new Vancouver-Dubai flights will complement Air Canada's daily service between Toronto and Dubai, broadening its presence in fast-growing international markets. 

"We are extremely pleased to add the only non-stop service linking Vancouver and Dubai, two iconic and vibrant global destinations. Dubai is one of the top destinations worldwide renowned for its extraordinary landmarks, rich culture and entertainment. Vancouver is a top cosmopolitan destination, and this new route offers additional ease to global visitors looking to experience BC's spectacular natural beauty, range of outdoor activities and exciting adventures. In cooperation with our codeshare and frequent flyer partner Emirates, our Vancouver-Dubai flights will connect to a multitude of destinations across the Middle East, Indian subcontinent and East Africa in Dubai, providing customers with choice and convenience while travelling for business or visiting friends and family," said Mark Galardo, senior vice-president, network planning and revenue management, at Air Canada.
