The aircraft, to be delivered from 2013 to 2015, will add to the airline’s current fleet of five Trent 700-powered A330s and another 12 to be delivered.
Mark Dunkerley, Hawaiian Airline’s President and CEO said: “This announcement marks another important milestone in the growth of our business and our long range fleet. The Rolls-Royce Trent 700 delivers high levels of operational performance and fuel-efficiency. It is the quietest engine for the Airbus A330 – an important consideration for Hawaiian Airlines.”
Mark King, Rolls-Royce, President – Civil Aerospace, said: “We are very pleased that Hawaiian Airlines has again chosen to place its trust in our world-class engine technology, which is underpinned by comprehensive TotalCare® support. We look forward to continuing to develop our important relationship and helping Hawaiian Airlines maximise the benefits of Rolls-Royce technology.”
