Hawaiian Airlines accelerates expansion plans with additional plane
Hawaiian Airlines is accelerating plans to expand service in Asia and other markets with the purchase of an additional Airbus A330-200 on top of the the nine it already has commitments for through 2014.
The latest announcement is for the purchase of an A330-200 to be delivered in the the second quarter of 2011, the company said in a news release
The first three A330s to join Hawaiian’s fleet will be leased, and are scheduled to arrive in April, May and November of this year.
“Good financial performance has positioned us well to seize the opportunities to grow our business,” said Mark Dunkerley, Hawaiian’s president and chief executive officer.
Separately, the Department of Transportation reported that Hawaiian Airlines was the nation’s highest-ranked carrier in January for on-time performance, fewest cancellations, and fewest misplaced bags.
