UAE carriers challenge Canada ruling

Emirates Airline is fighting attempts by the Canadian government to limit both its and Etihad’s access to the country, Gulf News has reported. Under Canada’s “open skies” policy, foreign carriers are supposed to be actively encouraged to begin services to Canadian destinations. The UAE-based airlines however, are currently limited to a combined six flights a week from the UAE to Toronto. “This is a matter between the two governments, although Etihad has made no secret of the fact that it would like to increase the number of flights between Abu Dhabi and Canada,” an Etihad Airways spokesperson told Gulf News.
