Air Canada rouge to Honolulu

Air Canada rouge launches nonstop service from YYZ to HNL with big savings

Flying to Hawaii just got a whole lot easier for Canadians travelling from the East Coast. Starting Nov. 26, Air Canada rouge will begin the only nonstop service between Toronto and Honolulu. Making Hawaii travel even sweeter, Air Canada Vacations is offering packages in conjunction with the new nonstop flights with savings of up to $450.

“Hawaii has long been a very popular destination for Canadians from coast to coast,” said Benjamin Smith, executive vice president and chief commercial officer, Air Canada. “With the expansion of Air Canada rouge to Hawaii, we are delighted to introduce the only nonstop flights between Toronto and Hawaii. Flights are timed to provide convenient connections at our main Toronto hub for flights serving destinations throughout Air Canada’s extensive network. In combination with Air Canada Vacations, we are pleased to offer Canadians even more holiday choices.”

The new YYZ to HNL route will operate using Air Canada rouge Boeing 767-300 ER aircraft offering a choice of two cabins with three choices of service, personal space and comfort. Service will begin Nov. 26 and operate twice weekly (Wednesday and Sunday) until April 2015.

“Air Canada rouge is best suited to compete more effectively in markets where there is both a high leisure travel demand and low-cost competition,” said Smith. “The expansion of our leisure carrier to Hawaii, in tandem with Air Canada’s mainline fleet renewal, is a key element of our strategy for sustainable, profitable growth at both airlines.”

In addition to the new nonstop route, Air Canada has also announced that its nonstop service from Vancouver to Honolulu and Maui, currently operated by Air Canada, will be converted to daily Air Canada rouge Boeing 767-300 ER service.

Couples can now save $450 on their YYZ-HNL packages with ACV ($400 on air, plus $50 on car). This offer is valid for bookings made before Oct. 31 for travel Nov. 21 – April 30, with a minimum three-day car rental.

Air Canada rouge’s daily nonstop service from Vancouver to Honolulu will begin Nov. 21 and run until April 2015. Four-day/week service begins in May 2015 and ends in October. Canadians can also book Air Canada Vacations packages with direct flights from Vancouver to Kona and Maui, and Calgary to Maui, with Air Canada and Air Canada rouge.
