That's what I heard, and they plan on using an A340-500. Would be nice to see another one of those in Toronto.

I am looking forward to seeing them and many more carriers into Toronto very soon. Seems that the Middle Eastern carriers want into Toronto and there is a lot of investment coming this way now thanks to Four Seasons and Farimont which happen to be privately owned or majority controlled by Kingdom Hotels.

Look for more deals from the Middle East region in Canada since investments in the USofA are scrutinzed more publically than ever before.

you are right, Im sure that the video I saw and the promos was just a mistake and the fact that you say its not so must mean its true, my and emirates appologies
emirates employees shmeirates employees, its the 2007 new destinations that are advertised in the emirates ticketing centre so read into it what you will, I know what i saw

Emirate VS Etihad flights

I doubt both two Emirate and Etihad will have daily flight to Canadian city such as Toronto because tourists from Toronto do not travel to Emirate Arab country. I think very several passengers will ride on both airlines. it is waste money for flight with a lot of empty seats to or from Toronto. Why should both airline plans to fly direct to Canada instead of one of either two??

Well, I'm not trying to stir up any controversy, but I just spoke to a senior Emirates Airlines employee and I asked him if they would be starting a Vancouver run and the answer, without hesitation, was a flat out no. I asked him about Toronto and he said, "before the end of next year." Seems like the rumours are piling up in Toronto's favour to start a flight to Dubai.

this has been discussed in the last few pages and other threads, the main reason is that A LOT of southeast asians live in and around Toronto and travel frequently using a city of transit like london, JFK or in the case of Etihad Abu Dhabi, inf act Id wager thats the vast majority of loads on Etihaad. It would be in Emirates's best interests to enter into this lucrative market. Buy hey, if Vancouvers their choice, fine by me, you wont be seeing me flying to vancouver to catch an emirates flight.

Emirates Will come to Toronto First because GTA has a big SouthAsian/ME population and there is room to grow. There are lots of Canadians expats who work in ME. Just look at Etihaad, they started 3 flights a week which are booked months in advance. Etihaad is even starting daily flights from TO to UAE in 2007. Emirates will start 2-3 times a weeks flights first then expand later.

That's exactly what I heard. One thing for Emirates to consider too...Etihad is slowly passing them in terms of passenger satisfaction, so hopefully they can get into the Toronto market before Etihad becomes so popular that they don't stand a chance.

New Routes Planned ---according to the web site "flyertalk.com" Emirates Airlines are planning to begin new routes in 2007 to Newcastle UK, Toronto, Sao Paulo, Houston and Venice. The Toronto route is to begin with next winter's schedule period effective October 28th using a daily Boeing 777-300ER on the route linking Toronto with Dubai. This is subject to further confirmation of course.

the current agreement for UAE allows both one UAE airline and one canadian. It also allows for up to 6 flights a week for both airlines.

LINK

"for direct own aircraft services, up to a maximum of four flights per week in each direction without restriction as to size of aircraft effective immediately, five flights per week effective June 1, 2001 and six flights per week effective June 1, 2003."

Great, hopefully my relatives (who live in both Toronto and Dubai) could go nonstop...

A lots of airlines wants to come to Toronto but they cant because our govt. is so protective of Air Canada. We only have two open skies agreements with USA/UK. While the US have agreements with over 77 countries. Thats why Canadians have to pay a lot more and have much less choice in airlines.

It about time the govt open the market and let the best survive.

But AC doesn't fly to UAE at the moment, hence competition may not be a huge issue.

despite what people say Toronto is the #1 destination for most immigrants to Canada - hence why they will get and continue to get the most airlines landing there

True dat! There's really not a more attractive market in Canada for airlines than Toronto. It's just good business sense.

Actually, it's split. Asian carriers tend to fly to Vancouver as their only Canadian destination. Not that many fly to both coasts.

Doesn't make a difference.. Those carriers will most likely expand to Toronto in the near future, while many lucrative international airlines will stay away from Vancouver because it doesn't have nearly the international pull of Toronto.
