HONOLULU — Hawaiian Airlines says it has signed a purchase agreement with Airbus to buy 16 new planes as part of a plan for expanded routes between the islands and the West Coast.

The planes each seat about 190 passengers.
Plans calls for the acquisition to take place between 2017 and 2020. The deal includes rights to nine additional planes.
