Hawaiian Airlines Orders 10 Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners

Hawaiian Airlines has finalized an order with Boeing for 10 787-9 Dreamliners, valued at $2.82 billion at list prices.

The deal also includes purchase rights for 10 additional 787s.

"The Dreamliner's operational performance and passenger-friendly cabin makes it an ideal aircraft to serve as our flagship aircraft of the future," said Peter Ingram, president and chief executive officer of Hawaiian Airlines. "The aircraft provides Hawaiian with more seating capacity and greater range to expand within our current network and offer new destinations to and from Asia Pacific and North America."

Hawaiian announced in March that it had selected the 787-9 Dreamliner to serve medium to long-haul routes, signing a letter of intent for the aircraft.

The 787-9 is the longest-range Dreamliner with the ability to fly up to 7,635 nautical miles (14,140 kilometers) with 290 passengers in a standard two-class configuration, while using 20 percent less fuel than older generation aircraft.

Boeing Global Services will provide Hawaiian Airlines with new aircraft transition support services such as Training and Initial Provisioning to ensure a smooth changeover from previous widebody aircraft.

"We are delighted to officially welcome Hawaiian Airlines to the 787 Dreamliner family. Hawaiian has been on an impressive growth path and we are honored they have chosen the Dreamliner to take their airline to the next level," said Kevin McAllister, president and chief executive officer of Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "We look forward to delivering the Dreamliner to Hawaiian and supporting them with integrated services to help them operate more efficiently and lower their costs."
