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.
