With the retirement of Les Kovacs as Sales Manager Canada for Singapore Airlines, Discover the World will take over responsibility for sales and marketing across Canada effective July 1, 2021.
Discover the World has provided sales representation to Singapore Airlines in Mexico for more than 25 years, and more recently in Czech Republic and Slovakia.
Building on the foundation Singapore Airlines has established in Canada, Discover Canada will leverage their local knowledge to continue to grow awareness of Singapore Airlines, and increase revenues.
Ian Murray, Discover the World CEO, said: “We are extremely proud to play such an important role in the representation of Singapore Airlines in the Canadian market and are very much looking forward to bringing our deep market knowledge and experience into play.”
Jane Clementino, director of Discover the World Canada, added: “This is an exciting opportunity! Singapore Airlines is a premium brand and continues to set the bar for all airlines globally.
“The Canadian Discover the World team is well positioned to strategically grow sales and provide exceptional service with our national coverage, dynamic partnerships and extensive expertise.”
“For decades, Canada has been an important market for Singapore Airlines, and we are confident this new appointment will continue to build on our long-standing tradition of providing expert, personalized support to our industry and trade partners,” said Cheechian Seah, VP Western for the carrier.
“SIA remains firmly committed to the Canadian market and continuing to be of service to travel agents, corporate travel managers, and business and leisure travelers throughout the country.”
