HONOLULU, Hawaii - Canadian carrier WestJet plans to offer seasonal flights between Alberta and Hawaii.

WestJet announced Thursday it has leased two Boeing 757-200 aircraft from Thomas Cook Airlines to offer more nonstop service between Calgary and Honolulu and Maui, and between Edmonton and Maui.

Pending regulatory approval, the flights are scheduled to begin December 13 through April 21.

The Honolulu flights will be twice a week. Flights between Calgary and Maui will be four times a week. Flights between Edmonton and Maui will be three times a week.

WestJet flight attendants will be on the flights, while Thomas Cook will provide the aircraft and pilots.

Visitors from Canada have been strong contributors to Hawaii's tourism economy.

    Direct flights from Alberta? Sounds OK to me. I live in Saskatchewan and WE have not been treated fairly by either of Canada;s airlines. This is not a new thing. It has been this way for a long time. Upon returning home from Hawaii, we have to overnite usually in Vancouver or sit in the airport for long periods of time........until we can fly back home. Hopefully, this will improve the service.
