Hawaiian Airlines release results acquires new aircraft

first_imgHawaiian Airlines has released a report detailing its financial results for the second quarter of 2014, and along with the results, the airline has made an announcement regarding the future.The airline has recorded growth in income for the second quarter, recording a figure of USD $22.4 million which is an increase of USD $9.7 million from last year.Hawaiian Airlines president and CEO, Mark Dunkerley said that consistency across all areas of business has seen the airline maintain growth year after year.“The same trajectory of substantially improving financial performance was evident in the second quarter as it has been over the last few quarters,” Mr Dunkerley said.Along with the release of financial figures, Hawaiian Airlines today announced the acquisition of six new Airbus A330-800neo aircraft starting in 2019, with rights to purchase an additional six aircraft in the future.The acquirement of the new fleet acts as the driving force for the carrier’s vision to serve farther non-stop destinations from Hawai‘i.The order, however, does replace Hawaiian Airlines’ existing order for six A350XWB-800 aircraft, which were due for delivery from 2017.Airbus chief operating officer John Leahy, has said that the new airplanes will allow Hawaiian Airlines to progress further by giving them a more global reach.“Hawaiian Airlines has long recognised the value of innovation and today’s commitment is yet more evidence of that forward-thinking mindset and the A330-800neo will serve the Hawaiian network well as the airline continues to expand,” said Mr Leahy.Source = ETB News: Lewis Wisemanlast_img
