Hawaiian Airlines to add six more A330 aircraft

Hawaiian Airlines has placed a firm order for an additional six Airbus A330-200s. The long-range, widebody twinjets will join Hawaiian's fleet of three A330s and an existing backlog of seven A330-200s and six A350 XWBs.

The carrier became an Airbus operator for the first time earlier this year.

Hawaiian's A330-200s seat 294 passengers in a two-class configuration. The six additional aircraft will be powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 700 engines.

"These additional widebody A330s will give us more flexibility to pursue domestic and international expansion opportunities, replace our existing Boeing 767 fleet and improve our ability to compete profitably in the coming years," says Mark Dunkerley, Hawaiian Airlines CEO.
