Following a Memorandum of Understanding in January 2013, Airbus announced a firm order for 16 A321neo aircraft from Hawaiian Airlines on March 25. This is the first single-aisle order of Airbus aircraft from the carrier.
The aircraft will have a two-class cabin with approximately 190 seats. Hawaiian has
not yet announced its engine selection.
“As our Airbus fleet expands, so does our destination network,” said Mark Dunkerley, President and CEO of Hawaiian Airlines. “Our fleet of A330s has prompted great response
from our customers and employees alike. And the addition of the A321neo to our fleet is expected to generate around one thousand new jobs at our airline.”
