Hawaiian Airlines on Monday announced a deal to purchase as many as 25 new Airbus A321neo jets.

Under Hawaiian’s memorandum of understanding with Airbus, 16 of the aircraft would be delivered between 2017 and 2020. Hawaiian would then have rights to purchase up to nine additional copies. Total value of all 25 jets would be $2.8 billion, based on current list prices.

With about 190 seats split between two classes, the new A321neo’s would be used to compliment and expand the airline’s existing fleet, which currently consists of widebody 25 Boeing 767-300ERs and 18 Airbus A330-200s.

Airbus promises a useful range of 3,650 nautical miles for their new A321neo. A quick map glance shows this range should should allow Hawaiian to fly them on US west coast routes without a problem, and perhaps even as far east as Denver or Salt Lake City.

“Everyone at Hawaiian wants us to keep our position as the market leader in service quality, cost efficiency and choice of destinations. Ordering the A321neo will secure this legacy on routes to the U.S. West Coast beyond the middle of this decade,” said Mark Dunkerley, president and CEO of Hawaiian Airlines in a statement. “The A321neo will be the most fuel-efficient aircraft of its type after its introduction in 2016. With its slightly smaller size we’ll be able to open new markets that are not viable for wide-body service, while also being able to augment service on existing routes to the West Coast of North America.”
