Hawaiian Airlines is moving new Airbus A330-200 aircraft onto its daily, nonstop Honolulu-Seattle and Maui-Seattle routes sooner than originally announced.

The carrier currently operates 264-seat Boeing 767-300ER planes on those segments but will add the new A330s, which are configured with 294 seats, to the Honolulu-Seattle flight Nov. 26 and the Maui-Seattle nonstop beginning Dec. 2.

Hawaiian had originally planned to make the change Dec. 8.

Along with the additional seats, the A330 aircraft offer more legroom and on-demand video through LCD touch-screen monitors in each seatback, according to Hawaiian officials.

Hawaiian offers daily nonstops between Seattle’s Sea-Tac Airport and the airports in Honolulu and Kahului, on Maui.
