Hawaiian Airlines pilots ratify narrow-body aircraft agreement

[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

Hawaiian Airlines’ pilots have ratified a tentative agreement reached earlier this month between the company and the Air Line Pilots Association 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, twin-aisle aircraft serving Hawaii from the West Coast. 

The company is in talks with the Association of Flight Attendants about a similar agreement.

Hawaiian announced the signing of a memorandum of understanding on Jan. 7 with airframe manufacturer Airbus to acquire 16 new A321neo aircraft between 2017 and 2020, with rights to purchase an additional nine aircraft. 

The 190-seat A321neo fleet expansion is expected to generate roughly 1,000 additional jobs at Hawaiian.
