Hawaiian Airlines and the union representing its pilots have tentatively agreed on the terms of a new 63-month employment contract, the Honolulu-based airline announces.

The Air Line Pilots Association, International (ALPA) will now bring the deal to pilots, who will vote between 6-24 March on whether to ratify the deal, says Hawaiian in a media release.

The new contract would run from 1 April to 1 July 2022, says Hawaiian, which employs 665 unionised pilots.

The airline does not provide additional details about the contract.

News broke on 8 February that Hawaiian and ALPA had reached an "agreement in principle" on a new deal.

The airline and union have been negotiating since May 2015. The pilots' current contract become amendable in September 2015.

Hawaiian is also in contract negotiations with flight attendants.
