Hawaiian Airlines Unveils New Cabin Interior for Boeing 717 Fleet
Hawaiian Airlines announced the completion of the retrofit of the first of its 18 Boeing 717s. The aircraft type is the only narrow-body jet operated by the airline.
The carrier outfitted the aircraft with a new island-themed interior and new coach seats from Acro Aircraft Seating.
The new interior colors consist of earth tones, accents of fuchsia and sky blue, and aqua. The seats have new seatback tables manufactured from solid aluminum, and are what the airline calls “tablet tables,” optimally sized for beverages and the use of tablet devices.
In addition, the eight first-class seats on the aircraft have been outfitted with new seat covers and leather arm caps. Some planes will also receive new carpeting, gallery flooring and curtains, and forward windows.
Hawaiian operates some 160 short haul flights each day linking the islands of the state, with most flights ranging in duration from 20 to 60 minutes.
The airline said that it plans to have its entire narrow-body fleet equipped with the new interior by the end of the year.
