Travellers from Singapore can now enjoy a direct flight to Vancouver on Air Canada. Today, the airline inaugurated its first nonstop flight between Singapore and Vancouver – currently also the only direct route between the two cities. 

The city in western Canada is one of the most liveable cities in the world and great for tourists to visit too, considering its beautiful parks, lively beaches, and lush temperate rainforests. The greatest hurdle for Singaporeans wanting to visit was travelling to Vancouver, which meant enduring a flight of 18 hours or longer with a stopover in cities like San Francisco, Hong Kong, or Narita, depending on the airline of choice.

But Air Canada's new Singapore-Vancouver route will take just 14 hours and 40 minutes. That's at least 4 hours off your travel time, which we think is pretty neat. It also means that travellers from Vancouver will now have much easier access to Southeast Asia via Singapore's air hub. Vice versa, Singaporeans can unlock destinations in the rest of North America, such as Chicago and Washington, via Vancouver International Airport.  

To enjoy such convenience, you'll have to fork out a respectable $1199 and up for economy class. Prices for premium economy class and Air Canada Signature Class start from $3096 and $6430 respectively. Prices will vary based on demand, so do check out the ticket prices and schedules on the website here
