Air Canada will launch non-stop flights to Hawaii from Calgary this winter.
The seasonal route to Honolulu and Maui will come into effect on December 5th, with the flights operated using Boeing 767-300ER aircraft.
Marcel Forget, Air Canada’s vice president of network planning, said the non-stop service would save more than two-and-a-half hours of travelling time in each direction.
"We expect this new service to be particularly popular with Albertans looking to escape winter and enjoy the tropical Hawaiian islands," he commented.
Mr Forget went on to say that that the flights to Hawaii offer convenient onward connections to and from Edmonton and destinations including Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Toronto.
The airline will offer up to five weekly flights to the Pacific archipelago, with two servicing Honolulu and three to Maui.
Flights to Hawaii will complement Air Canada’s existing 15 weekly services to the islands from Vancouver.
The carrier will offer flights to 49 sunshine destinations as part of this year’s winter schedule, with new locations including Fort de France and La Romana.
