Travel News: Canadian Travelers Have Better Options en Route to Asia

Canadian travelers like Andrew Rivkin were excited about the recent news of the Porter and Singapore Airlines Partnership, and from now on flights to Asia from Canada will be much more efficient because customers can transfer connecting airlines using only one airline ticket. The flight takes around twenty hours, making it one of the longest flights one can take, so in addition to convenience, this new agreement also offers travelers better comfort with Porter’s all-business class seating.

Effective immediately, the agreement means passengers can now fly out of Billy Bishop Airport to Singapore’s Changi Airport, flights which will operate with one connecting flight each way. It should be noted that a connecting flight in Newark, New Jersey is required, where you can expect layovers of around an hour for both those flying into Toronto or Singapore.

Porter Airlines is a Toronto based carrier, and the airline is quickly becoming a Canadian travelers’ favourite; they were even one of only two North American airlines that earned four stars in Sky Tax’s annual rankings (the other was Air Canada). This deal with Singapore Airlines is the latest of three moves by Porter to enhance customers’ flying experience. They have additional agreements with South African Airways, which allows passengers to fly from Toronto to South Africa, and Qatar Airways, which allows Toronto flyers to reach the Middle East comfortabley and hassle-free.

Canadian travelers now have a better variety of options when flying to Southeast Asia, with a seamless experience for both business and leisure travel. We don’t travel to Asia as much as we’d like, but when businessmen and travelers from Canada like Andrew Rivkin need to book a flight to the far east continent, it’ll be much more convenient!
