Hawaiian Airlines will start flying its brand new Airbus A330-200 to Sydney tomorrow.
The new 294-seat aircraft will take over the daily service from Honolulu, adding 30 more flights compared to the Boeing 767 previous operated on the route.
Hawaiian’s first A330 to Australia is due to arrive in Sydney at 1920 on Wednesday.
“Travel from Australia to Hawaii is booming,” said Sherilyn Robinson, Hawaiian’s General Manager of Sales & Marketing in Australia. “Introducing our new A330 aircraft will help meet growing demand and will further improve the travel experience for our customers. Our new A330s can seat 30 more passengers than the Boeing 767s, which means a capacity increase of 11% per flight, or the equivalent of 41 additional 767 flights in a full year.”
The A330 features high-resolution LCD touch-screen monitors installed in each seat, as well as a USB port.
