Hawaiian adds another new Airbus aircraft

HONOLULU (KHNL) - Hawaiian Airlines has added another new wide-body Airbus A330 aircraft, which joins two other A330s announced two weeks ago.

The company has also negotiated delivery of two of the new aircraft in 2010, beginning the airline's transition to a new long-range fleet two years earlier than originally planned.

Hawaiian announced earlier this year that it plans to purchase up to 24 new Airbus aircraft, a total list-price value of about $4.4 billion.

The wide-body, twin-aisle Airbus seats 298 passengers and has an operating range of 6,050 nautical miles, allowing Hawaiian to fly farther nonstop than what is allowed by its current fleet of Boeing 767 aircraft.
