WestJet has announced it will launch new, non-stop services between Edmonton and Maui beginning next year. WestJet is the only airline to offer this service from Edmonton.
WestJet will fly between Edmonton and Maui once per week on Fridays from March 5 to April 30, 2010. Introductory one-way fares start at $369 plus applicable fees and taxes, and are available immediately.
"Edmontonians love Hawaii, but they love non-stop flights even more," said Bob Cummings, WestJet Vice-President, Guest Experience and Marketing. "We wish we could offer this opportunity sooner, but with 11 new destinations in our 2009-2010 winter schedule – our biggest winter schedule ever – we had to wait until we took delivery of more aircraft before we could make this happen."
The service will end on April 30, 2010, as WestJet transitions from its winter schedule to its summer schedule. "Based on demand for the service during this period, we hope to offer it again as part of our 2010-2011 winter schedule," added Cummings.
