With a substantial increase in demand for flights to sun destinations for the 2021-22 winter season, Air Canada finalizes its service offering to Hawaii. New non-stop flights from Montreal and Toronto to the Hawaiian Islands will now be available as of
- December 12, 2021 from Montreal
- December 17, 2021 from Toronto
They will join those from Calgary and Vancouver already in operation, with the latter resuming flights on September 20.
These additions will allow all Canadians to reach Honolulu and Maui, and Europeans to do the same via the Montreal and Toronto hubs.
Three classes of service will be offered, including Air Canada Signature Class. The aircraft used for these long flights from Montreal (more than 11 hours in the air) and Toronto are Boeing 787 Dreamliners.
Calgary flights will be operated with Boeing 737s, and Vancouver flights, depending on the schedule, will use both aircraft types.
Tickets are already on sale, and the good news is that the current refund policy will apply:
- Air Canada Travel Voucher
- or the equivalent value in Aeroplan points, with a 65% bonus should the airline cancel or reschedule a flight by more than three hours
And of course, you’ll be able to use the Air Canada Buddy Pass coming with some Aeroplan credit card offers, such as with the TD® Aeroplan® Visa Infinite* Card or the American Express® Aeroplan®* Card.

With Aeroplan points
A round-trip flight from Montreal to Honolulu from January 9 to 23 costs 33,800 Aeroplan points and $93.45 in taxes.
The same flight has a cash value of $969.93 ($817.99 + $151.94 tax), so you can get 2.6 cents per Aeroplan point, which is a great value.
If you use your Air Canada Buddy Pass earned with your TD® Aeroplan® Visa Infinite* Card, each ticket would cost $560.94. Make your calculations! Or check out this article for examples:
