I was due to have an interview with Etihad Airways this week for Passenger Service at YYZ for Etihads new YYZ service service this summer but was told all interviews were cancelled because Etihad had lost the contract to fly to Toronto, and Emirates were set to win the Toronto service, does anyone know anymore of this or have any info on either airlines planned service to YYZ??

Im very glad you posted this as this will put a lot of rumors concerning EK and EY flying to YYZ to rest...so now it shall be EK only representing the UAE in YYZ it seems and not GF nor EY.

Emirates starting a YYZ service is highly contingent on getting rights for a daily service. EK have indicated they can start a 3-4x initially but want reassurance they can increase the service to a daily within 6 months. From what i understand talks were held a month or so ago with Canadian govt. officials to get approval for this daily service.

Another issue is aircraft availability - not much available time left on the A340-500s at the moment. That is unless they take the A345 off the planned 2nd daily PER service (Oct.) and re-allocate acft to a potential YYZ. Then 2nd PER PER may get another type eg. B777-300ER, B777-200ER or A340-300.

And I'm sure eventually, they will upgrade this rout to an A380 as well.. I mean, why not? They'll have Hundreds of them!!  Wink Good news for Toronto, and EK... they should make a killing on flights to India and beyond.

THY is starting service with A343's right after they get the delivery of their new 332's(I think October and dying to now the exact date and posted a question about it here but no one seems to know) The new THY service was discussed here and the thread includes a link to an article that have the CEO confirming IST-YYZ route. THY New US Routes? (by Gokmengs Mar 19 2005 in Civil Aviation)
Hope this helps.

Not so fast. My sources say the Canadian government demanded offsetting benefits for such a promised increase in frequencies for EK and that's where the matter stands. I'm not sure what those offsetting benefits might be, but it may involve fifth freedoms that would require Canada first conclude satisfactory arrangements with third countries.
