Hawaiian Airlines yesterday took delivery of the first of 27 long-range Airbus A330-200 jets it plans to acquire over the next decade.

President and CEO Mark Dunkerley and a group of about 200 airline employees, musicians and dancers attended a ceremony in Toulouse, France, marking the acceptance of the jet.

The aircraft will then be flown back to Honolulu where it is scheduled to arrive Monday.

The jet is scheduled to go into service in early June on the airline’s Los Angeles-to-Honolulu route.

Hawaiian officials have said they plan to use the A330-200 to fly to Japan should the Federal Department of Transportation approve the airlines’ request for two of the four routes opening up between Haneda Airport and the United States.

A new open-skies treaty reached in December between the U.S. and Japan would significantly relax restrictions on flights between the two countries, including slots at Haneda.
