Hawaiian Airlines recently landed its first new long-range Airbus A330 at Honolulu International Airport, which was greeted by fresh flower leis, island music and hula dancers. The wide-body, 294-seat aircraft was piloted by Hawaiian Airlines captains Robert Mix and Mark Dawson.

“The A330 handled beautifully all the way here and it was an honor for Capt. Dawson and me to bring Hawaiian’s newest jet home to Hawaii,” said Mix. “I believe our customers are going to be very happy flying in this aircraft.”
Hawaiian’s new A330 begins service on June 4 as flight number 2, departing Honolulu at 1:15 p.m., bound for Los Angeles.
The carrier plans to add up to 27 new Airbus planes to its fleet by the end of this decade.
