WestJet confirms 757 lease for Alberta-Hawaii flights

If you have read some other forums or blogs you may have heard rumors that WestJet was planning to lease a 757 to operate their Alberta-Hawaii flights. I did not want to post anything here until it was confirmed and WestJet has made it official via a press release today that they will be leasing a North American Airlines 757 from Feb 12 - Apr 30, 2011 to provide the much needed capacity for their flights out of Calgary and Edmonton. Last season was WestJet's first running flights from our city to Hawaii directly but the flights were weight restricted to ensure WestJet's 737's could reach Hawaii. This move will allow WestJet to seat 193 passengers per flight which is close to double of what they offered last season.
