New direct flight from Vancouver to Dubai
Last week, we published an article saying that there would be an increase in flights between Canada and the United Arab Emirates.
Today, Air Canada announces a new direct flight between Vancouver and Dubai. It’s perfect for going to see the light shows of the Burj Al Arab and the Palm Jumeirah!
From October 28, 2023, there will be 4 flights per week.
All flights will be operated with Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft. The available cabins will be:
- in Air Canada Signature Class with fully reclining seats,
- in Economy Privilege class,
- and in Economy class.
These new Vancouver-Dubai flights complement the daily service between Toronto and Dubai.
Here are the Air Canada schedules for direct flights between Vancouver and Dubai:
|AC78||Vancouver YVR at 8:50 pm||Dubai DXB at 11:50 pm +1||Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday|
|AC79||Dubai DXB at 02:00 am||Vancouver YVR at 05:55 am||Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday|
The flight from Vancouver to Dubai takes 15 hours. The return journey takes 15 hours and 55 minutes.
The schedule has been designed to optimize connections to and from Alberta, British Columbia and the western U.S. via the Air Canada hub at YVR.
Example of Vancouver and Dubai flights with Aeroplan points and cash
For example, you can have a one-way ticket to Dubai from Vancouver starting at $981 in Economy class, or in a single Signature Class cabin with a sleeper for about $8,000.
The same flight is available for approximately 50,000 Aeroplan points and $54 in economy class. In Business Class, the cost is approximately 269,000 Aeroplan points + $54.
This new direct flight from Vancouver to Dubai is one of several new routes announced for 2023.
We hope that Emirates will now add a flight between Montreal and Dubai as well!
