Canada-UAE air capacity restriction

An 8 June 2007 Aviation Daily article by Adrian Schofield reports that Emirates is to follow Etihad in commencing services to Canada. The article notes that Emirates would like to start daily services but the Canada-United Arab Emirates air services arrangements restrict services to six flights per week and Etihad is already using three of these.

Etihad started operating to Toronto via Brussels in October 2005 and from 2 June 2007 commenced non-stop services between Abu Dhabi and Toronto.
