WestJet leases B757-200s for Hawaii flights

WestJet has leased two Boeing 757-200 aircraft from Thomas Cook Airlines to deliver more non-stop, daytime service between Calgary and Honolulu and Maui, and between Edmonton and Maui. Pending regulatory approval, flights are scheduled to start Dec. 13 and continue through April 21, 2013. WestJet will operate two flights per week Calgary-Honolulu; four flights weekly Calgary-Maui; and three flights weekly Edmonton-Maui. As in the previous year, WestJet flight attendants will be on board the Boeing 757-200s to provide the same WestJet guest experience. Thomas Cook Airlines will provide the aircraft and pilots. WestJet is the only airline providing capacity for Thomas Cook’s tour operator arm in the Canadian market, through a two-year partnership by the two companies. (;
