Hawaiian Airlines orders 16 A321neo aircraft  
First single-aisle Airbus aircraft to join Hawaiian’s fleet  
Following a Memorandum of Understanding in January 2013, Airbus today announced 
a firm order for 16 A321neo aircraft from Hawaiian Airlines – the first 
single-aisle order of Airbus aircraft for the carrier. The aircraft will 
feature a comfortable two-class cabin with approximately190 seats. Hawaiian has 
not yet announced its engine selection.  
“As our Airbus fleet expands, so does our destination network,” said Mark 
Dunkerley, president and CEO of Hawaiian Airlines. “Our fleet of A330s has 
prompted great response from our customers and employees alike. And the 
addition of the A321neo to our fleet is expected to generate around one 
thousand new jobs at our airline.”  
“Airbus prides itself on being part of our customers’ growing successes, and 
this order is the perfect example of how the right plane at the right airline 
can alter not just a business culture, but a local community,” said John Leahy, 
Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers. “The A320neo Family brings a further 
greening of our product line, and considering the environmental consciousness 
of the Hawaiian people, this aspect of the aircraft is another driver for 
eco-friendly, sustainable growth at the airline. It’s also the most comfortable 
single-aisle flying today.”  
Incorporating new engines and large Sharklet wing tip devices, the A320neo 
Family will deliver fuel savings of 15 percent. In addition, the A320neo Family 
will provide a double-digit reduction in NOx emissions and reduced engine 
noise. The A320neo will enter into service from late 2015, followed by the 
A319neo and A321neo in 2016.  
More than 9,150 A320 Family aircraft have been ordered and more than 5,450 
delivered to more than 385 customers and operators worldwide reaffirming its 
position as the world’s best-selling single-aisle aircraft Family. The A320neo 
has over 95 percent airframe commonality making it an easy fit into existing 
fleets while offering up to 500 nautical miles (950 kilometers) more range or 
two metric tons more payload at a given range.
