Hawaiian Airlines optimizes fleet plan

Hawaiian Airlines has reported it plans to add three new aircraft to its fleet with the purchase of one A330-200 and the lease of two additional A321neos, the company said.

The newly ordered planes will enable Hawaiian to retire its fleet of Boeing 767 aircraft by the end of 2018 while supporting measured, sustainable growth of its unique medium and long-haul missions.

Hawaiian previously announced plans to phase in 16 new A321neo aircraft to its fleet beginning in 2017. Letters of intent with two lessors for the delivery of additional aircraft in early 2018 will bring its total fleet of A321neos to 18 by 2020.

Hawaiian Airlines, Inc. is a subsidiary of Hawaiian Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: HA). The airlines offers non-stop service to Hawaii from more than 11 US gateway cities, providing approximately 160 jet flights daily between the Hawaiian Islands, with a total of more than 200 daily flights system-wide.
