Hawaiian Airlines Announces New Plane Deal with Boeing

Boeing and Hawaiian also agreed to an option for 10 additional Dreamliners.

Boeing [NYSE:BA] and Hawaiian Airlines announced today that the carrier has selected the market-leading 787 Dreamliner as its flagship airplane for medium to long-haul flights.

The airline signed a non-binding letter of intent for the Boeing 787-9 jets in a deal valued at $2.82 billion at list prices, passing over Airbus's A330. "Its expanded seat capacity and extended range will allows us to expand within our current route network and offer new destinations in the Asia-Pacific region".

"The Dreamliner combines excellent comfort for our guests with fantastic operational performance and will allow us to continue modernizing our fleet into the next decade", Hawaiian's new president and CEO Peter Ingram said in a statement. Although small in scale relative to the orders coming from Asia and the Middle East, the Hawaiian order marks a significant victory for Boeing.
