Hawaiian Airlines buys 12 aircrafts to Airbus

Hawaiian Airlines Inc., Hawaii`s largest airline, has signed a firm order for six A350 XWB-800s and six A330-200s. 
Hawaiian Airlines will begin receiving their new A330s in 2012, and will take delivery of their first A350 in 2017. Both models will be powered by Rolls-Royce Trent engines.
This is Hawaiian`s first order for an Airbus aircraft, and is the first step in the airline`s plan to replace its current widebody fleet. The A330 and A350 will allow the airline to expand its long-range fleet, opening new non-stop routes on more distant markets from Hawaii. Hawaiian Airlines` A350 XWB-800s will seat 322 passengers in a two-class configuration and the A330-200 will transport 305 passengers in two classes.
``A new customer for a new aircraft type is the kind of endorsement we`re seeing more of, thanks to an evolving product line that delivers the aircraft that today`s market and environment demand,`` said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers. ``The A330 and the new A350XWB will both help this outstanding airline to grow its horizons and its already outstanding reputation.``
