Hawaiian Airlines has placed a firm order for six Airbus A330-200s.

These long-haul, twin-engine, widebody aircraft will join Hawaiians fleet of three A330s and an existing backlog of another seven A330-200s and six A350 XWBs.

Hawaiians A330-200s transport 294 passengers in a two-class configuration outfitted with individual in-seat, inflight entertainment systems. 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, said Mark Dunkerley, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hawaiian Airlines.

John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer Customers, added, The fact that Hawaiian has increased its order for Airbus aircraft within just months of flying their first A330 is a testament to the airlines satisfaction with the economy, reliability and comfort of our long-haul family.

With a typical range capability of 6,850 nautical miles (for two-class configuration), the A330-200 has the versatility to cover all ranges from short-haul to true long haul.
