Just saw this on another aviation website:

Order No. 2007-A-176
May 29, 2007

IN THE MATTER OF an exemption from section 59 of the Canada Transportation Act, S.C., 1996, c. 10, to permit Emirates to sell, cause to be sold or publicly offer for sale in Canada a scheduled international service between the United Arab Emirates and Canada.
File No. M4212/E217-4
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Emirates (hereinafter the applicant) has applied to the Canadian Transportation Agency (hereinafter the Agency) for the exemption set out in the title. The application was received on May 17, 2007.

Section 59 of the Canada Transportation Act (hereinafter the CTA) prohibits an applicant from selling, causing to be sold or publicly offering for sale in Canada an air service without holding a licence in respect of that service. The applicant has applied for a scheduled international licence to operate a service between the United Arab Emirates and Canada. However, as the application is not yet complete, an exemption from the application of section 59 of the CTA is necessary in order to allow the applicant to sell, cause to be sold or publicly offer for sale in Canada the proposed air service prior to obtaining the applied for licence.

The applicant states that it proposes to start operating its service between the United Arab Emirates and Canada on October 28, 2007 and that it is in the process of obtaining a Canadian Foreign Air Operator Certificate issued by Transport Canada which is required to complete the licence application. Consequently, the applicant submits that in order for the proposed service to be viable, it must be able to offer for sale the service at the earliest possible date.

The Agency has carefully reviewed and considered the application and is of the opinion that in order for the proposed service to be viable, the applicant must be able to offer for sale seats at the earliest possible date. Therefore, the Agency finds that compliance by the applicant with section 59 of the CTA is impractical in the present circumstances.

Accordingly, the Agency, pursuant to paragraph 80(1)(c) of the CTA, hereby exempts the applicant from the application of section 59 of the CTA, thereby permitting the applicant to sell, cause to be sold or publicly offer for sale in Canada a scheduled international service between the United Arab Emirates and Canada, effective from the date of this Order, without holding the required licence, subject to the following conditions:

1. All passengers shall be notified, before reservation, that the international scheduled service is subject to government approval. All future advertising in any media, whether in writing or by telecommunication, shall also include this information.

2. The applicant shall apply its published tariffs, on file with the Agency and in effect, to sales of transportation.

3. The exemption authorized herein does not relieve the applicant from the requirement to hold a licence in respect of the service to be provided and, accordingly, no flights shall be operated until the appropriate licence authority has been granted.

4. The applicant shall arrange to provide alternative air transportation by an appropriately licensed air carrier, at no additional cost for all passengers who have made reservations with the applicant, or, if such arrangements are not possible or acceptable to the passenger, to provide a full refund of all monies paid by the passenger, should the international scheduled licence not issue.

The exemption granted herein does not exempt the applicant from the requirements of other legislative acts or regulations, including those of Transport Canada.

Does this mean we may see EK in Canada this fall?

With EK serving Toronto its been on and off for quite a while now. Didn't they have their chance a couple of years ago but did not take it because they requested daily service or nothing, and got the later. EY the pounced on it and is serving YYZ presently.
It will be interesting to see what develops out if this.

I thought that problems with any UAE carrier serving Canada were related to the bilateral between the two countries.

Damn. They stole my idea!  Wink

What equipment will it be? I'm guessing a 777 of sorts. Great to hear this news. I was waiting for Emirates to start service to Canada!  Smile

As far as I know, the present bilateral restricts one carrier from each country to fly 6 p/week. Emirates wanted daily and refused to start until they had it. EY came, and took the rights quickly after EK said no.

EK are now hitting themselves for that.

I'm still hoping that EK will come to AMS one day (with pax flights that is). I do find it odd, as AMS was always in the top 10 of biggest airports in the world (they have now dropped to 12 IIRC), but still has no service from EK, while a lot of much smaller airports do receive EK flights. As I understand it, slots are not a problem at AMS.

I think that Emirates has a Toronto service on the cards. There are a lot of Toronto-based positions with Emirates being advertised in Dubai at the moment.

I believe these applications are required even if a carrier wants to operate via codeshare on somebody else's metal. Can anybody confirm? My point is that I wouldn't take this CTA notice as an indication that there is to be an imminent Emirates flight to Canada. The airline has made its interests well known but the bilateral is an impediment.

Unless I am confused, under the restricted bi-laterals are not EY already utilizing all of the available frequencies between UAE and Canada?

EY must be doing ok as I gather they are now non stop into YYZ, and I believe using the 346?

There have been many rumblings at different volumes of EK coming into YYZ over the last 2/3 years. Till the bilateral is revised and EK get daily slots at YYZ this is not going to happen. I will believe it only when I am on board an EK frame on the ground at YYZ ready to head to the gulf.

I doubt it. Unless you haven't noticed EK is doing well everywhere, EK doesn't really need Canada. It's Canada's communist behaviour that we should be picking on.

Emirates can fly into YYZ tomorrow if they wished but can only do it 3 times a week. I heard Clark somewhere talking about wanting to go to YYZ or YUL daily or not at all.
Sorry but EK wants YYZ or YUL, not YYC or YVR yet.

This is such nonsense ! If so, EK would do the same thing to KLM at Dubai. AMS receives huge EK cargo operations. We will see EK pax at AMS in the future. However, they get higher yields on many European other routes, partly because of the heavy competition of KL at AMS. As many of us know O/D at AMS is low. The airport functions as transfer point, just like DXB.

Oh don't you worry, it's coming. With AC receiving their brand new 777s and 787s they will likely want to fly them to the Gulf and will have to renegotiate the agreement. EK knows that, they're just getting a head start on the process.
