WestJet to lease two Boeing 757-200s from Thomas Cook Airlines
WestJet Airlines (Calgary) announced today it will lease two Boeing 757-200 aircraft from Thomas Cook Airlines (Manchester) to deliver more nonstop, daytime service between Calgary and Honolulu and Maui, and between Edmonton and Maui.
Pending regulatory approval, flights are scheduled to begin on December 13, 2012, and continue through April 21, 2013. Details of WestJet’s seasonal nonstop service include:
|Between Calgary and Honolulu||Twice weekly|
|Between Calgary and Maui||Four times weekly|
|Between Edmonton and Maui||Three times weekly|
Just as in the previous year, WestJet flight attendants will be on board the Boeing 757-200s. Thomas Cook Airlines will provide the aircraft and pilots. The agreement complements the announcement in April that WestJet’s Boeing 737 aircraft will provide more seat capacity for Thomas Cook in the 2012-2013 winter season. As an expansion to its successful, two-year, Canada-wide, partnership, WestJet is the only airline providing capacity for Thomas Cook’s tour operator arm in the Canadian market.
