Hawaiian Airlines in its preparations for first deliveries of its Airbus A330s in April 2010 has detailed plans to place the first two aircraft on its flights from Honolulu to Los Angeles.

In October and November 2008 Hawaiian reached agreements with lessors AWAS and CIT to lease a total of three A330s starting in the second quarter of 2010 ahead of initial A330 deliveries from the manufacturer scheduled for 2012. The leases allow Hawaiian to accelerate its transition from Boeing 767-300ER aircraft by two years.

The carrier has six A330s and six A350s on order with Airbus.

During next year's summer peak travel period Hawaiian plans to add two daily nonstop flights to Maui - one from Oakland and the second from San Diego. In addition the carrier is adding a third daily flight from Honolulu to Los Angeles. All the new seasonal flights begin 17 June and end on 24 August.
