Canada's largest airline Air Canada (TSE:AC) saw shares nudge 0.56% higher on Wednesday as it revealed it was launching a new service to the island of Kauai in Hawaii with its new fuel efficient Boeing 737 MAX-8 fleet this winter.
The airline will also be doubling the frequency of its flights from Western Canada to Hawaii, and all flights from Western Canada to Honolulu, Maui and Kona, and other popular sun destinations.
"The introduction of the fuel-efficient Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft to our fleet has given us tremendous flexibility to strategically enhance our already extensive North American network, and offer more flights to popular destinations with more connection options from our YVR and Calgary hub airports," the group said.
The 737 MAX uses 20 % less fuel per seat than the original Next-Generation 737.
Air Canada has 61 firm orders for the 737 MAX.
They are to be delivered by 2021, with 18 due to enter the fleet by the end of 2018.
