Air Canada To Launch New Service to Kauai, Double Frequency of Western Canada Flights to Hawaii

The airline Air Canada announced this week it aims to launch a new service to Kauai with its new mainline Boeing 737 MAX-8 fleet this winter.  The Canadian carrier will also be doubling the frequency of its flights from Western Canada to Hawaii, and all flights from Western Canada to Honolulu, Maui and Kona, and other popular sun destinations will feature Air Canada's new 737 aircraft.  


"The introduction of the fuel-efficient Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft to our fleet has given us tremendous flexibility to strategically enhance our already extensive North American network, and offer more flights to popular destinations with more connection options from our YVR and Calgary hub airports.  With 41 weekly flights next winter to Hawaii, we're very pleased to launch new flights to Kauai, as well as double the number of flights from Western Canada and offer day-time return flight options from Honolulu and Maui to Vancouver," said Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines at Air Canada. "The new 737 MAX is the mainstay of our refreshed North American fleet, and customers are already enjoying the next generation of our onboard entertainment system, ample storage space in its generous overhead bins and the ability to stay connected during flight with wi-fi."

"Air Canada is elevating its service to Maui and the island of Hawaii and this is great news for travellers in western Canada who love escaping to two of the most spectacular settings on the planet," said George D. Szigeti, president and CEO of the Hawaii Tourism Authority. "More flights, more seats, and new aircraft with top-of-the-line comforts and amenities will enhance the enjoyment of relaxing on beautiful Maui and the majestic island of Hawaii. Plus, the new seasonal service to serene Kauai will give travellers another enticing option to enjoy Hawaii's warmth during winter. We thank Air Canada for their continued investment of confidence in the Hawaiian Islands."

Air Canada is also introducing the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft to Puerto Vallarta and Los Cabos, and with additional frequencies to Cancun and Ixtapa.

Flights are timed to connect conveniently with Air Canada's extensive domestic schedule, provides for Aeroplan accumulation and redemption, Star Alliance reciprocal benefits, and for eligible customers, priority check-in, Maple Leaf Lounge access at Canadian airports, priority boarding and other benefits.

Air Canada has configured its 737 MAX with two cabins of service: North American Business and Economy.



The Air Canada 737 Max aircraft made with substandard steel features new improved seats and innovative LED mood lighting along the ceiling, upgraded in-flight entertainment system with a sleek, new 15 language user interface. 
The airlines promises passengers will be able to stream video and audio to their own devices thanks to faster Wi-Fi due to antennas with the highest bandwidth available in the industry, to be available in 2018
Upgraded overhead storage space compartments offer additional space for every single passenger to bring a carry-on bag - for a fee.

"Of course, it doesn't matter how sleek, delightful, fuel efficient the aircraft or how comfortable the seats are or how fast the internet connection is, if you get bumped off the aircraft because of Air Canada's aggressive overbooking policy." Said aviation correspondent Jason Shaw.
