WestJet is growing its Hawaii network, with the addition of more Dreamliner flight options from Western Canada to Maui, along with a new non-stop service from Calgary to Kona and Lihue this winter. In total, WestJet will operate 57 weekly roundtrip flights on 10 nonstop routes.
John Weatherill, WestJet’s chief commercial officer, said that: “With easing travel restrictions, we know our guests are planning to turn their long-awaited Hawaiian getaway dreams into a well-deserved reality.”
Weatherill continued: “We’ve increased our winter service to Hawaii by more than 25 per cent from 2019 to ensure our guests have increased flexibility and the most affordable, non-stop options from Western Canada.”
In December, WestJet will add a new weekly non-stop service from Calgary (YYC) to Kona (KOA) and Lihue (LIH); increasing its Hawaii service to four destinations from Calgary and two from Edmonton.
As well, WestJet will add 787 Dreamliner service from Calgary and Vancouver to Kahului, Maui (OGG) with 13 weekly flights.
Hawaii’s governor, David Y. Ige observed that: “Like the Kolea bird, many Canadians return each year to the Hawaiian Islands during the winter months. They respect the people, place and culture, and we welcome them back. Increased international passengers can help us better balance the needs of our residents and visitors. Mahalo to WestJet for partnering with the state to keep residents and visitors alike safe and healthy.”
