Vancouver to Singapore - $499 CAD roundtrip including taxes

Singapore

On Thursday, September 14th, Air China is going to be having yet another flash sale to Asia, this time from Vancouver to Singapore for $499 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

There will also be $499 flights from Vancouver to Guangzhou, Nanjing, and Qingdao, China.

Air China's flights have a stopover in Beijing, China.

Availability for travel

According to the Air China promo page...

Travel period:
September 15 to December 5, 2017;
January 7 to February 10, 2018;
February 20 to April 30, 2018

Blackout dates for outbound flights: October 5 to 15, 2017

Blackout dates for inbound flights: September 22 to October 3, 2017

Maximum stay: 3 months

From past experience, Air China's defined travel periods for their flash sales can be misleading. Sometimes they have $499 flights available within the date ranges they mention. Sometimes they don't. You really need to just try different dates and see.

How to find and book these flights

1. On the night of Thursday, September 14th go to the following Air China flash sale page...

LINK: Air China flash sale page

NOTE: Air China usually releases theses fares around 11:55 PM PST. In other words, you would need to stay up late on the night of Thursday September 14th.

2. Scroll down to the bottom, where the 'Flight Search' box can be found.

3. Search for a flight from Vancouver to...

Singapore (SIN)
Guangzhou, China (CAN)
Nanjing, China (NKG)
Qingdao, China (TAO)

TIP: The last time there was a similar sale, some people had trouble using their credit card with the default payment option on Air China's website.

The Air China website also allows you to choose Paypal as the credit card processor, and that seemed to work better. A Paypal account is not required.

You can also try registering for an account on the Air China website ahead of time. It might make things faster/easier when it comes time to book.

Update 9/14 - I'm noticing that the Air China flash sale page for this deal is gone now.

Not sure if they still plan to offer these tonight ?

Update 9/14 @ 10:30 PST - These fares are starting to show up on Kayak, so it looks like Air China does plan to offer them tonight. They can't be booked just yet, but you can see which dates are probably going to be available...

1. Try the following Kayak search...

Kayak search: Vancouver to Singapore

2. Click on the date input box at the top of the page, and try different dates. Try dates between September 2017 and April 2018.

Update @ midnight - these fares are now live and bookable through the Air China website.
