"The Dreamliner combines excellent comfort for our guests with fantastic operational performance and will allow us to continue modernizing our fleet into the next decade," said Hawaiian Airlines President and CEO Peter Ingram. "It has more seating capacity than Hawaiian's current wide-body fleet, which will allow us to further build upon our successful growth in Asia."

The list price for the purchase is 2.82 billion with a range of 7,635 nautical miles. 

"We are thrilled they have chosen the 787 Dreamliner to power the next stage of their expansion," said Boeing Commercial Airplanes President and CEO, Kevin McAllister.

This represents a change in direction as the airline currently operates 24 Airbus A330-200s.
