Hawaiian Airlines (HA, Honolulu) has taken delivery of its first A330-200(P2F) ahead of the launch of operations for Amazon.com in the fourth quarter of 2023.

N4621K (msn 1902) was ferried after conversion at Shanghai Pudong via Seoul Incheon to Honolulu on July 1-2, 2023. The aircraft is just 4.7 years old and has never operated in a passenger configuration (as it was not taken up by Hong Kong Airlines), making it the world's youngest converted freighter of any type. It was delivered already in Amazon's "PrimeAir" livery. Like all Hawaiian A330-300(P2F)s, N4621K is dry-leased from Altavair.

The Hawaiian airline expects to take two more A330s which are under P2F conversion with no prior passenger service history, as well as seven older, ex-Etihad Airways jets. The aircraft will undergo pre-induction maintenance at Honolulu airport.

Chief Executive Peter Ingram told ch-aviation recently the freighters' initial base will be Cincinnati International. All ten aircraft are to be inducted into service by the end of 2024.

The A330-300(P2F)s will be the only dedicated freighters operated by Hawaiian Airlines. The carrier's passenger fleet includes twenty-four A330-200s.
