On March 25, 2013, Hawaiian Airlines announced the A321neo would join its growing Airbus fleet. Their announcement finalized a Memorandum of Understanding signed earlier this year.
The A321neo will allow Hawaiian Airlines to enter new domestic and international markets. It is also part of the airline’s larger efforts to modernize and expand their long-range fleet.
To commemorate the deal, Airbus presented Hawaiian Airlines with a small fleet of A321neo models produced by PacMin.
