HAWAI­IAN TO BUY NEW AIR­BUS A321­NEO

Business Traveler (USA) - - IN-FLIGHT ENTERTAINMENT -

Hawai­ian Air­lines has signed an agree­ment with Air­bus for de­liv­ery of 16 new A321­neo air­craft with the rights to pur­chase nine more. Air­bus will de­liver the air­craft be­tween 2017 and 2020. The A321­neo is a long-range, sin­gle-aisle air­craft, and Hawai­ian Air­lines has bought them to com­ple­ment its cur­rent fleet of wide-body, twin-aisle air­craft.

The air­craft will open Hawai­ian up to new mar­kets where wide-body ser­vice is not suit­able. The A321­neo seats 190 pas­sen­gers in a two-class con­fig­u­ra­tion and can op­er­ate around 3,650 nau­ti­cal miles. Seat widths will be wider than twinaisle A330s.

If Hawai­ian Air­lines chooses to pur­chase the nine ad­di­tional air­craft, the com­bined list-price value of its or­der is $2.8 bil­lion.
