HONOLULU – February 01, 2013 – Hawaiian Airlines and the Association of Flight Attendants (AFA), which represents the company’s 1,400 flight attendants, have reached a tentative agreement on new contract terms covering the operation of long-range, single-aisle aircraft the company plans to acquire to complement its current fleet of wide-body aircraft serving Hawai‘i from the West Coast.
On January 7, Hawaiian announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding with airframe manufacturer Airbus to acquire 16 new A321neo aircraft between 2017 and 2020, with rights to purchase an additional nine aircraft. The company also announced that the acquisitions are contingent upon the signing of new agreements with its pilots’ and flight attendants’ unions covering operation of the new aircraft type.
Hawaiian’s 600 pilots, represented by the Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA), ratified a similar agreement on January 28.
The fleet expansion is expected to generate roughly 1,000 new jobs at Hawaiian.
The long-range, single-aisle A321neo aircraft will complement Hawaiian’s existing fleet of
wide-body, twin-aisle aircraft used for long-haul flying between Hawai‘i and the U.S. West Coast.
At 146-feet-long, the A321neo will seat approximately 190 passengers in a two-class configuration (First and Coach) and has a range of 3,650 nautical miles. The aircraft will offer the more comfortable seat widths found in the twin-aisle A330. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed, however, the aircraft have a total list-price value of approximately $2.8 billion if all of the purchase rights are exercised.
