Canadian cheap flights carrier WestJet has announced a new partnership with Mokulele Airlines, an inter-island carrier based in Hawaii.
The partnership, which is designed to offer an improved service for inter-island travellers, follows WestJet's recent decision to increase the number of its Hawaiian services to 23 a week.
Commenting on the deal, WestJet executive vice-president Hugh Dunleavy said that the airline's long-term goal was to be the first choice carrier between Canada and Hawaii.
"This partnership will provide our guests greater access across the Hawaiian Islands and will assist our guests booking with WestJet Vacations in planning their ideal vacation," he said.
The partnership will allow passengers greater access and convenience in terms of connecting to the off-islands, which are currently served by Mokulele flights.
WestJet yesterday (December 9th) commented on the successful conclusion of the Canada-European Union air transport agreement.
The airline currently offers services to 51 cities across North America and the Caribbean, and is considered a pioneer of low-cost air travel in Canada.
