The route boasts a flight time of up to 16 hours and five minutes, whisking passengers between Vancouver’s Pacific hub and Singapore’s bustling heart.

“We are thrilled to welcome customers onboard this new route, linking Canada and Singapore through our Vancouver hub,” shared Mark Galardo, Air Canada’s Executive Vice President of Revenue and Network Planning.

This strategic expansion strengthens Vancouver’s position as a preferred gateway to Asia, with seamless connections for travelers.
