Air Canada to Launch New Service Between Vancouver and Singapore From April 3, 2024
Starting April 3, 2024, Air Canada will introduce four weekly flights between Vancouver and Singapore. The route will be operated with a three-class Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner featuring Signature Class, Premium Economy and Economy Class cabins.
On Wednesday (June 14, 2023), Air Canada announced the launch of new service between Vancouver International Airport (YVR) and Singapore’s Changi International Airport (SIN) starting April 3, 2024. The route will operate four times weekly with a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner featuring Signature Class, Premium Economy and Economy Class cabins. The schedule has been optimized for convenient one-stop onward connections across North America from Vancouver with Air Canada, and with Air Canada’s Star Alliance and codeshare partner Singapore Airlines to destinations across Southeast Asia, South India and Western Australia.
In Wednesday’s announcement, Air Canada’s EVP – Revenue and Network Planning, Mark Galardo, 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 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.”
Also commenting on the new Singapore service, Vancouver Airport Authority’s President & CEO, Tamara Vrooman, said,
“We are thrilled to welcome Air Canada's new service to Singapore, making YVR the only airport in Canada with direct access to this vibrant city. This non-stop service will also increase access to several important markets across the Indo-Pacific area, supporting trade diversification and investment opportunities that benefit our local economy. I would like to thank Air Canada for its continued investment in YVR as part of its growing network between Asia and the Americas and we look forward to welcoming this new service to Singapore.”
