Hawaiian Airlines Boeing 767-300ER Earns Initial Service ETOPS Approval From FAA

Honolulu based carrier, Hawaiian Airlines earned one of the highest extended-range twin-engine operations (ETOPS) approvals with its new Boeing 767-300ER airplanes from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Hawaiian Airlines is the first airline in the industry, without prior ETOPS experience to receive 180-minute approval from the FAA. Other airlines that have received 180-minute ETOPS approval either had previous ETOPS experience on another twin-engine airplane or were initially granted approval for less diversion time.
