Hawaiian Airlines commenced (28-Apr-2010) its long-range fleet renewal and expansion programme, taking delivery of the first of up to 27 new widebody Airbus aircraft (a 294-seat A330-200) that will be integrated into its fleet over the next decade. The new A330 is scheduled to arrive at Honolulu International Airport on 03-May-2010, after which the aircraft and its flight crews will undergo preparations to commence service on the Honolulu-Los Angeles route in early Jun-2010. Hawaiian is leasing three A330s that join the fleet in 2010 and has signed a purchase agreement with Airbus to acquire seven A330s (starting in 2011) and six A350XWB-800 aircraft (starting in 2017), as well as purchase rights for an additional five A330s and six A350s.
