Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Wednesday, 6 February 2008

Hawaiian Airlines has signed a firm order for six Airbus A350 XWB-800s and six A330-200s. This deal finalises a Memorandum of Understanding announced in November 2007. The airline will begin receiving their new A330s in 2012, and will take delivery of their first A350 in 2017. Both models will be powered by Rolls-Royce Trent engines.

This is Hawaiian's first order for an Airbus aircraft, and is the first step in the airline's plan to replace its current widebody fleet. The A330 and A350 will allow the airline to expand its long-range fleet, opening new non-stop routes on more distant markets from Hawaii. Hawaiian Airlines' A350 XWB-800s will seat 322 passengers in a two-class configuration and the A330-200 will transport 305 passengers in two classes.

"A new customer for a new aircraft type is the kind of endorsement we're seeing more of, thanks to an evolving product line that delivers the aircraft that today's market and environment demand," said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers. "The A330 and the new A350XWB will both help this outstanding airline to grow its horizons and its already outstanding reputation."
