Hawaiian Airlines orders 10 787 Dreamliners

Hawaiian Airlines intends to purchase 10 787-9 jets valued at $2.82 billion at list prices, with purchase rights for 10 additional 787s.

Hawaiian Airlines selected the GEnx-1B engine to power its intended purchase of 10 Boeing 787 Dreamliners. The engine order will be valued at more than $520 million (USD) list price.

Hawaiian will use a number of new aircraft transition support services from Boeing Global Services, including training and initial provisioning to ensure a successful and on-time entry into service.

The 787-9 can carry about 290 passengers on flights of about 7,635 nautical miles (14,140 km).

“The Dreamliner’s operational efficiency and superior guest experience make it the best aircraft for modernizing our fleet in 2021 and beyond,” said Peter Ingram, president and chief executive officer of Hawaiian Airlines. “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.”

Boeing and Hawaiian Airlines will work toward finalising this new airplane order and it will be reflected in the monthly update of Boeing’s Orders & Deliveries website.
