(NASDAQ: HA) ("Holdings" or the "Company"), parent company of Hawaiian Airlines, Inc. ("Hawaiian"), today reported its financial results for the full year 2012 and the fourth quarter of 2012. (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20040827/LAF044LOGO) 2012 Full Year Financial Highlights oAdjusted net income, reflecting economic fuel expense and excluding lease termination costs, of $55.6 million or $1.06 per diluted share, an increase of 28.7% year-over-year. oGAAP net income of $53.2 million or $1.01 per diluted share. oOperating cost per available seat mile (CASM), excluding fuel and lease termination costs, decrease of 6.0% year-over-year. oAdjusted operating margin of 7.0%, reflecting economic fuel expense and excluding lease termination costs. oUnrestricted cash and cash equivalents increase of 33.5% year-over-year. oReturn on invested capital, pre-tax, of 14.9%.

Mark Dunkerley, the Company's President and Chief Executive Officer, commented that "A good year of growth and improving financial performance was finished off by a disappointing break-even result in the fourth quarter. The sharp weakening of the Yen, continued excess capacity in certain markets and an accounting charge all worked to depress our earnings for the period despite many other things going right for the business. The year as a whole was every bit as busy and exciting as we had forecast. We added four new long haul destinations, eight long haul and short haul aircraft, opened a hub on Maui and added approximately 600 employees to our rolls, all in 2012. Throughout it all, the employees of Hawaiian Airlines continued to deliver the very highest quality travel and shipping experience to our customers. Our employees' tireless dedication to our customers and to our business is a distinguishing strength of Hawaiian Airlines. 2013 promises to be an equally exciting year for the company with new destinations, new aircraft and more employees being planned." The fourth quarter 2012 results reflect an out-of-period frequent flyer adjustment related to the timing of revenue recognized for mileage credits sold to participating companies in previous years. This adjustment resulted in a net decrease to pre-tax income of $7.3 million in the quarter, or $0.08 per diluted share ($7.9 million decrease to passenger revenue and $0.6 million decrease to other operating expense). See Table 2 for the impact of this adjustment on selected statistical data. Statistical data, as well as a reconciliation of the reported non-GAAP financial measures, can be found in the accompanying tables. Liquidity and Capital Resources As of December 31, 2012, the Company had: oUnrestricted cash and cash equivalents of $405.9 million. oAvailable borrowing capacity of $68.9 million under Hawaiian's Revolving Credit Facility. oOutstanding debt and capital lease obligations of approximately $661 million consisting of the following: o$246.4 million outstanding under secured loan agreements to finance a portion of the purchase price for four Airbus A330-200 aircraft. o$170.7 million in secured loan agreements for a portion of the purchase price for 15 previously leased Boeing 717-200 aircraft. o$106.3 million in capital lease obligations for an Airbus A330-200 and two Boeing 717-200 aircraft. o$64.7 million outstanding under floating rate notes issued in conjunction with the acquisition of three Boeing 767-300 ER aircraft. o$72.7 million outstanding of Convertible Senior Notes. The Company expects to take delivery of five Airbus A330-200 aircraft in 2013, and has entered into debt and lease financing commitments for the first four deliveries in the first half of the year. The increase in Hawaiian's fleet resulting from the delivery of these five Airbus A330-200 aircraft in 2013 will be partially offset by a decrease of four Boeing 767-300ER aircraft during the year, with three aircraft returned at the end of their lease terms and one planned retirement. In January 2013, the Company signed a Memorandum of Understanding for the purchase of 16 new Airbus A321neo aircraft for delivery between 2017 and 2020, with the rights to purchase an additional nine aircraft. The long-range, single-aisle aircraft will complement Hawaiian's existing fleet of wide-body, twin-aisle aircraft used for long-haul flying between Hawai'i and the U.S. West Coast. 2012 Highlights Operational Highlights oRanked #1 nationally for on-time performance, for 10 out of the 11 months reported in 2012, by the U.S. Department of Transportation Air Travel Consumer Report. oRanked second overall in the 2012 Airline Quality Rating Report. oIntroduced a Maui hub offering improved connections between Maui and Neighbor Island destinations, as well as additional flights to and from the West Coast. oProvided chartered air transportation for the Oakland Raiders for the 13^th consecutive season. oSigned a new three-year contract with the Association of Flight Attendants. oBecame the first airline to receive aviation carbon credits for reducing carbon dioxide emissions.

Hawaiian Holdings, Inc. Economic Fuel Expense (in thousands, except per-gallon amounts) The Company believes that economic fuel expense is the best measure of the effect of fuel prices on its business as it most closely approximates the net cash outflow associated with the purchase of fuel for its operations in a period. The Company defines economic fuel expense as GAAP fuel expense plus (gains)/losses realized through actual cash (receipts)/payments received from or paid to hedge counterparties for fuel hedge derivative contracts settled during the period.

Hawaiian Holdings,Inc. Non-GAAP Financial Reconciliation (in thousands, except per-share data) The Company evaluates its financial performance utilizing various GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures, including, net income (loss), diluted net income (loss) per share, CASM, PRASM, RASM and Passenger Revenue per RPM. Pursuant to Regulation G, the Company has included the following reconciliation of reported non-GAAP financial measures to comparable financial measures reported on a GAAP basis. The Company believes that excluding fuel costs from certain measures is useful to investors because it provides an additional measure of management's performance excluding the effects of a significant cost item over which management has limited influence. In the second quarter of 2011, the Company recorded a pre-tax $70.0 million non-recurring lease termination charge for the purchase of the Company's existing fleet of Boeing 717-200 aircraft that were previously under lease agreements.
