Hawaiian Holdings Reports

Third Quarter

Financial Results

HONOLULU — Hawaiian Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: HA) (“Holdings” or the “Company”), parent company of Hawaiian Airlines, Inc. (“Hawaiian”), today reported its financial results for the

“We’re pleased with our third quarter results and with the outlook for the remainder of the year” said Mark Dunkerley, Hawaiian Airlines president and chief executive officer. “Lower fuel prices and strong demand in each of our geographies is more than making up for the growth in industry capacity between the US west coast and Hawai‘i and the strength of the US dollar. Meanwhile, by our high standards we've had a disappointing summer operationally. The combined effects of a gate shortage at Honolulu resulting in part from airport construction and an abrupt change in air traffic control procedures lengthening our flights led to delays for our guests. I would like to thank all of the great employees at Hawaiian since, throughout it all, they’ve worked incredibly hard to mitigate the impact of these external challenges.”

Statistical data, as well as a reconciliation of the reported non-GAAP financial measures, can be found in the accompanying tables.
