Hawaiian Airlines has reached a tentative contract agreement with the Association of Flight Attendants that outlines increased compensation for the company’s 1,280 flight attendants.

“This agreement, which spans nearly five years, recognizes the contributions of our flight attendants and provides cost stability as we add flights between our islands and outside of our state,” Mark Dunkerley, Hawaiian’s president and CEO, said in a statement.

The deal, brokered with help from the National Mediation Board, extends through 2016 and must still be approved by Hawaiian’s flight attendants. Company officials expect that process to take place during the next couple of weeks.
