Air Canada is launching a new route to Kauai and doubling the frequency of flights from Western Canada to Hawaii.
Seasonal three times a week service from Vancouver to Kauai begins in December and will be operated by all-new fuel-efficient Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft.
The new jets will also serve all flights from Western Canada to Honolulu, Maui and Kona, and various other winter sun vacation routes, including Puerto Vallarta and Los Cabos from Vancouver and Calgary-Cancun.
“We’re very pleased to launch new flights to Kauai, as well as double the number of flights from Western Canada and offer day-time return flight options from Honolulu and Maui to Vancouver,” said Benjamin Smith, president, passenger of airlines at Air Canada.
“The new 737 MAX is the mainstay of our refreshed North American fleet, and customers are already enjoying the next generation of our onboard entertainment system.”
The airline will offer 41 weekly flights to Hawaii from next winter, Smith said.
The 737 MAX has a two-class service and features upgraded overhead storage bins, faster Wi-Fi capable of video streaming and quiet engine technology for up to 40% less noise during the flight.
Air Canada expects to take delivery of 18 737 MAX jets before the end of 2018.
