Hawaiian Airlines finalizes order for up to 20 787 Dreamliners from Boeing

Hawaiian Airlines and Boeing [NYSE:BA] have announced they have finalized an order for 10 787-9 Dreamliners, valued at USD 2.82 billion at list prices, the company said.

The deal also includes purchase rights for 10 additional 787s.

Hawaiian announced in March that it had selected the 787-9 Dreamliner to serve medium to long-haul routes, signing a letter of intent for the aircraft.

The 787-9 is the longest-range Dreamliner with the ability to fly up to 7,635 nautical miles (14,140 kilometers) with 290 passengers in a standard two-class configuration, while using 20 percent less fuel than older generation aircraft.

Boeing Global Services will provide Hawaiian Airlines with new aircraft transition support services — such as Training and Initial Provisioning — to ensure a smooth changeover from previous widebody aircraft.
