Pilots at Hawaiian Airlines have ratified a tentative agreement, allowing the airline to finalise its order for 16 Airbus A321neos.

The Honolulu-based carrier says that the order, which also includes purchase rights for an additional nine A321neos, was contingent on pilot and flight attendant support.

Hawaiian is still in negotiations with the Association of Flight Attendants (AFA) regarding a new contract.

The airline's pilots are represented by the Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA).

Deliveries of the A321neo are anticipated to begin in 2017. They will be used for flights between Hawaii and the US west coast.
