KAHULUI - Air Canada's flights to Kahului Airport had not been affected as of Saturday by the airlines' pilots calling in sick as part of a labor dispute.
Airport Manager Marvin Moniz said there had not been any cancellations for the airline, which flies nine times per week between Kahului and Canada's cities of Vancouver and Calgary.
Elsewhere, Air Canada's operations had yet to return to normal Saturday, a day after dozens of pilots called in sick, forcing the cancellation of about 75 flights.
Toronto's Pearson Airport listed 17 cancellations and 50 delays on its website Saturday. Flights at other airports also were affected.
Air Canada spokesman Peter Fitzpatrick said Saturday that the problems are a result of planes not being in a position to fly due to Friday's labor action.
Air Canada said that the Canada Industrial Relations Board granted the airline an order on Friday requiring its pilots to end the work stoppages that caused travel chaos across the country. The board said that certain pilots were engaged in an illegal strike.
Beginning May 23, the number of Air Canada flights to Maui will drop to three per week - one each on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Moniz said.
The nine flights per week began in October, he said.
