Air Canada announced today that it will begin service from Vancouver International Airport (YVR) to Singapore’s Changi International Airport (SIN). The new route will debut next year on April 3rd and will run 4x weekly. This announcement comes a few months after Singapore Airlines pulled out of Vancouver and Canada entirely.


Singapore is one of my favorite cities in Asia and there will soon be even more choices to get there. Star Alliance has the lock on nonstop travel between North America and Singapore with the following departure cities currently:

  • Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) on Singapore Airlines
  • Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) on Singapore Airlines
  • John F. Kennedy International airport (JFK) on Singapore Airlines
  • San Francisco International Airport (SFO) on Singapore Airlines and United Airlines
  • Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) on Singapore Airlines

Mark Galardo, Executive Vice President, Revenue and Network Planning at Air Canada, said:

Air Canada continues to adapt its international network strategy in response to evolving global trends and is broadening its presence in the Indo-Pacific region to capitalize on growing business links and Canada’s changing demographics. We are committed to growing YVR as a premier trans-Pacific hub, and Singapore is a top global financial centre, a multicultural destination that offers an abundance of tourism and food experiences, as well as an important gateway to beyond destinations in Southeast AsiaSouthern India and Western Australia. Our newest flight will be equally appreciated by international business travelers, as well as those seeking an exciting holiday destination, or simply visiting friends and family. Customers can now begin planning their next trip to Singapore. We look forward to welcoming you onboard next spring.”

Flights will be operated on Air Canada’s 787-9 with 298 seats spread across Signature Class (Business Class), Premium Economy, and Economy Class offered.

Anthony’s Take: After Singapore Airlines’ departure, it’s good to see Canada reconnected to Singapore nonstop. This also provides yet another option for travelers in North America to reach the City in a Garden.
