Hawaiian Confirms ATR42 Purchase

Hawaiian Airlines announced this morning that they have completed purchase of an ATR42-500, and has a purchase agreement for a second aircraft. These turboprops will be used for flights to/from MKK and LNY.

Hawaiian's first ATR42-500 is registered as N801HC (msn 629). It was originally delivered to CSA Czech Airlines [OK/CSA] as OK-JFL "Susice", in July 2004. It was leased from ACL Leasing. Five years later, this ATR42-500 was painted in the SkyTeam livery until it was returned to the lessor.

More information in this Hawaiian Airlines press release.
