Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, has completed final preparations for the launch of its new route to Toronto, via Brussels, scheduled to take off from Abu Dhabi International Airport.



Etihad flight 501 will be then be welcomed into Brussels International Airport with a celebratory dousing of the aircraft by the fire brigade and finally, a VIP reception at Pearson International Airport.



H.E Dr Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saif Al Nahyan, the Chairman of Etihad Airways and Chairman of the Civil Aviation Department of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, said, “Our first trans-Atlantic flight to Toronto after only two years of operations heralds further growth for Etihad Airways and will be a launch pad for our services to the USA in summer 2006. Guests are key to our strategic development and the new route will provide choice and flexibility when traveling to Europe and North America, an essential route for trade and tourism.”



To further exploit the opportunities of this new destination Etihad Airways has entered into its first code-share agreement with SN Brussels Airlines – which enables the airline’s guests to fly to a greater number of important European cities like Rome, Lyon, Strasbourg, Geneva, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle, Oslo, Berlin, Tempelhof, Hamburg and Vienna, among other important European destinations.



“The launch of this new destination supports one of Etihad’s key goals in offering the people of Abu Dhabi and the UAE access to as many of the world’s capitals as possible and ensuring Abu Dhabi’s role as a hub between East and West, North and South. Etihad hopes to add New York as a destination in 2006,” continued H.E Dr Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saif Al Nahyan.



Bilateral trade between Canada and the UAE is expected to double throughout 2005. The Canadian Business Council (CBC) in Abu Dhabi was launched in March 2005, paving the way for further Canadian companies to continue investing and expanding operations in the UAE, especially in the energy, environment, infrastructure, and health sectors.
