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 Asia, Southern India and Western Australia. Our newest flight will be equally appreciated by international business travellers, 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.

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

The flag carrier of Canada says that the timings are convenient for easy connections to/from destinations across North America via Air Canada’s hub at Singapore and, in Singapore to and from destinations across Southeast Asia, South India & Western Australia with Star Alliance and codeshare partner Singapore Airlines.

Presently, Singapore Airlines offers 3-weekly nonstop flights between the two cities but that service is scheduled to end by September 2023, meaning Air Canada will be the only airline offering nonstop flights between the two cities.

Meanwhile, Air Canada and flydubai recently signed Interline Partnership.
