2-in-1 Trip: Calgary to Singapore and Japan - $704 CAD roundtrip including taxes

Singapore and Japan

Now that Japan is finally re-opening on October 11th (no more mandatory guided tours, daily caps, or visa requirements) many of us have been wondering when there will be a great deal to Japan again.

Prior to the pandemic there would occasionally be some amazing price drops from Calgary to Japan with roundtrip flights temporarily available in the high $400s to low $600s CAD roundtrip including taxes.

The last time that happened was actually two years ago, *during* the pandemic.

After that, prices to Japan kept creeping upwards and never looked back. Today they sit at approximately $1300 CAD roundtrip for the cheapest flights.


When Australia opened back up, the astronomical flight prices from North America came back down to earth. Yes the demand was higher, but there was also more supply (more flights).

Will the same thing happen with Japan? My gut would say yes, eventually. The same market forces that were leading to great deals to Japan between 2016 and 2019 should eventually return. It's just tough to predict when that will be. But is there anything we can do in the meantime?


As you may have seen recently the first strong deal to emerge from Calgary to Asia was to Singapore. At $625 CAD roundtrip the price for YYC-SIN is pretty close to the great deals witnessed between 2018 and 2019.

Those prices are still around and using some Multi-City magic it's possible to turn them into a great "2-in-1 deal" where you can visit both Singapore *and* Japan for just $75 more.

UPDATE: May and June dates are sold out, but there are some new dates in the low $800s for late August and September 2023 travel.

How to find and book this deal

Step 1

Go to Kayak or Skyscanner

Step 2 - Search for a Multi-City flight like this one:

Leg #1: Calgary (YYC) to Singapore (SIN)
Leg #2: Singapore (SIN) to Tokyo (TYO)
Leg #3: Tokyo (TYO) to Calgary

Step 3 - For Leg #1 and Leg #3, try the following start and end dates for your trip.

Aug 22 to Sep 4, 5, 6, 7, 11, 12, 13, 14, 17, 18
Aug 23 to Sep 4, 5, 6, 7, 11, 12, 13, 14, 17, 18
Aug 29 to Sep 11, 12, 13, 14, 17, 18

-- previously available dates --

May 16 to Jun 5, 7
May 17 to Jun 5, 7, 12
May 24 to Jun 5, 7, 12, 14, 19, 21, 28

May 30 to Jun 7, 12, 14, 19, 21, 28
May 31 to Jun 7, 12, 14, 19, 21, 28 -- $713

Step 4 - For Leg #2 (the middle leg) try using a date that is 3 days after the date in Leg #1.

For example, if your start and end dates from above are May 17 to Jun 7, you could try searching for...

May 17 to May 20 to Jun 7.

This gives you a few days in Singapore and the rest in Japan.



If you try to reduce the number of days in Singapore to less than a few days, the flight price goes up.

You can however increase the number of days in Singapore without affecting the price.

NOTE: Most of these flights fly into Tokyo's NRT airport, and then home from Tokyo's HND airport. It's not an issue since you're spending time in Japan, but just be aware.
