Boeing and Hawaiian Airlines have announced that the carrier intends to purchase ten 787-9 jets valued at $2.82 billion at list prices. Hawaiian has also taken purchase rights for ten additional 787s.
No announcement has yet been made about Hawaiian’s choice of cabin configuration, but the 787-9 can carry about 290 passengers on flights of about 7,635 nautical miles (14,140 km).
Peter Ingram, President and CEO of Hawaiian Airlines commented: “The Dreamliner’s operational efficiency and superior guest experience make it the best aircraft for modernising our fleet in 2021 and beyond. Its expanded seat capacity and extended range will allow us to expand within our current route network and offer new destinations in the Asia-Pacific region.”
