Hawaiian Airlines orders 16 A321neo aircraft from Airbus

Airbus today announced a firm order for 16 A321neo aircraft from Hawaiian Airlines – the first single-aisle order of Airbus aircraft for the carrier.

Hawaiian has not yet announced its engine selection.

Airbus claim the A320neo Family will deliver fuel savings of 15 per cent, 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.
