Emirates 'disappointed' with access to Canada

27 July 2009

Emirates Airline has expressed its disappointment with the Canadian government's decision of not allowing it greater access to that country's various destinations and that its services to Canada are 'restricted to only three flights per week', Emirates Business has reported. Transport Canada, the country's transportation regulator, insists the current cap of six flights a week from the UAE to Canada, split between Emirates and Etihad, is enough to serve the market. 'The language Transport Canada has used over the past decade is aggressive, often biased and deeply objectionable to this carrier,' Emirates Senior VP Andrew Parker said. 'We do hope that Transport Canada will adopt a more balanced and accurate view on Emirates.'
