HONOLULU (AP) - Air Canada says its leisure carrier subsidiary will begin flying nonstop between Toronto and Honolulu later this year.

The airline says Air Canada rouge will launch the twice-weekly flight on Nov. 26. It will be the only nonstop service between Toronto and Hawaii.

The company plans to fly Boeing 767 jets on the route.

Air Canada Executive Vice President Benjamin Smith said Tuesday the subsidiary is best suited to compete in markets with low-cost competition and high demand from leisure travelers.

The company plans to have the subsidiary take over existing Air Canada non-stop service from Vancouver to Honolulu and Maui.



More than 500,000 travelers from Canada visited Hawaii last year.
