CALGARY — WestJet is gearing up to offer more Dreamliner flight options from Western Canada to Maui and new nonstop service from Calgary to Kona and Lihue this winter. 

With 57 weekly roundtrip flights on 10 nonstop routes, WestJet says it will have more service between Canada and Hawaii than any other airline.

“With easing travel restrictions, we know our guests are planning to turn their long-awaited Hawaiian getaway dreams into a well-deserved reality,” said John Weatherill, WestJet, Chief Commercial Officer. “We’ve increased our winter service to Hawaii by more than 25% from 2019 to ensure our guests have increased flexibility and the most affordable, nonstop options from Western Canada.”

WestJet is adding new weekly nonstop service from Calgary (YYC) to Kona (KOA) and Lihue (LIH) beginning in December. With the addition of the new service, WestJet will offer service to four Hawaiian destinations non-stop from Calgary and two from Edmonton.

 

 

Starting this winter, WestJet will also add 787 Dreamliner service from Calgary and Vancouver to Kahului, Maui (OGG) with 13 weekly flights. WestJet’s 787 service to Maui from Western Canada is scheduled with daytime departures to ensure guests arrive in Maui in the early afternoon. The airline’s signature Dreamliner service features lie-flat seats with on-demand dining and entertainment.

“We are very happy with the launch of WestJet’s additional routes to Hawai’i,” said Lorenzo Campos, Account Director for Hawai’i Tourism Canada. “We would like to thank WestJet for being our trusted partner and for their continuous support of The Hawaiian Island and sharing the aloha spirit and always embracing the Hawaiian value of malama. We are looking forward to welcoming our Canadian family back this winter.”
