Hawaiian Airlines exploring electric aircraft technology

HONOLULU (AP) — Hawaiian Airlines is exploring electric aircraft technology with a company based in Boston.

The airline is interested in using the vehicles for travel between Hawaii’s islands, Hawaii News Now reported.

The company called REGENT is designing “seagliders” that would each carry up to 100 people.

Hawaiian hasn’t committed to purchasing any of the aircraft but is exploring the possibility. A news release from REGENT said Hawaiian agreed to strategically invest to support the initial design of the company’s next-generation seaglider.
