Air Canada is resuming direct flights between Toronto and Dubai. Flights from Toronto to Dubai resumed on June 1, while Dubai-Toronto flights will begin from June 3.

The Canadian Embassy in Abu Dhabi and the Consulate General in Dubai said Canada's national carrier will operate three non-stop weekly services. It will operate flights to Dubai on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays while return flights to Toronto will depart on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.

Set to operate the Boeing Dreamliner aircraft, the airfare on a one-way Toronto-Dubai flight will start from C$912 (Dh2,780).

In February, Air Canada had suspended flights to US and international routes including Dubai, citing a drop in demand for travel.

In addition to Dubai, it had also suspended flights to Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, Boston, New York, Seattle and Washington as well as Bogota, Sao Paulo, Dublin, Tel Aviv, London, Hong Kong and Narita.

The Dubai-based Emirates also operates direct flights to Canada.

Currently, Canada allows only its residents, citizens and people with urgent needs to enter the country. It's closed for tourism.
