Nagoya-Vancouver


All Nippon Airways and Air Canada will begin a non-stop code-share service between Nagoya in Japan and Vancouver four times a week from Monday.

Travel hub


Singapore plans to introduce a travel portal, bringing together key elements of the city-state's tourism industry, and a multi-function tourist card. The tourist card would allow payment of transport and other services, including entertainment and food, to streamline any travel in the Asian travel hub.


Travel disruptions


The recent European foot-and-mouth scare has illustrated how unexpected problems can hinder travel. There is a world of potential trip disruptions, including disease outbreaks, earthquakes, weather and political disturbances. Ijet Travel Intelligence has opened the world's first global travel intelligence operations centre to alert travellers when travel disruptions arise. www.ijet.com.
