Air Canada has big plans for this winter.
The carrier has announced that it will launch a new service to Kauai with its new mainline Boeing 737 MAX-8 fleet this winter, besides doubling the frequency of its flights from Western Canada to Hawaii.
All flights from Western Canada to Honolulu, Maui and Kona, and other popular sun destinations will feature Air Canada’s new 737 MAX aircraft, the airline announced.
“The introduction of the fuel-efficient Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft to our fleet has given us tremendous flexibility to strategically enhance our already extensive North American network and offer more flights to popular destinations with more connection options from our YVR and Calgary hub airports,” said Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines at Air Canada. With 41 weekly flights next winter to Hawaii, 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.”
Air Canada is also introducing the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft to Puerto Vallarta and Los Cabos, and with additional frequencies to Cancun and Ixtapa. It has 61 firm orders for the 737 MAX, with 18 due to enter the fleet by the end of 2018. All the aircraft will be delivered by 2021.
