You now have a winter 2019-2020 escape plan, courtesy of Air Canada. The airline announced this week that it will operate seasonal service between Toronto (YYZ) and Honolulu (HNL) next winter with a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner.

There are other options to the Aloha State from east coast of North America, but flying nearly 4,700 miles aboard a Dreamliner will be alluring to AvGeeks.

United, Delta and Hawaiian all serve Honolulu from points along the eastern seaboard (including a newly relaunched route from Detroit), but those tend to operate on Airbus A330 and Boeing 767s.

Those who opt to travel via Toronto will have the opportunity to spend a significant chunk of time in Air Canada's Signature cabin, featuring fully lie-flat suites and meals prepared by Canadian chef David Hawksworth. Timing for the flight is below.
