Hawaiian Airlines Signs Code Share Agreement with China Airlines

HONOLULU - Hawaiian Airlines announced the signing of a new code share
agreement today with China Airlines that will expand the reach of both their
respective networks and provide a range of new travel benefits for their
customers. The announcement comes after Hawaiian's launch of its new non-stop
service to Taipei yesterday, the latest addition to its growing international
network and seventh Asian gateway destination.

"With this new partnership, our customers will be able to have convenient
access to a host of new cities throughout Asia with connections through our
new Taipei route," said Mark Dunkerley, Hawaiian Airlines president and CEO.
"We are very excited about our new partnership with China Airlines and look
forward to sharing our island hospitality with its customers from cities we do
not serve directly today."

The new partnership will take effect in late 2013 and will allow Hawaiian to
place its two-letter booking code on China Airlines flights leaving Taipei for
Honolulu on Sundays and Honolulu to Taipei on Mondays; flights from Taipei to
Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore; and flights from Brisbane to Auckland and
Sydney to Auckland. This agreement will also allow seamless booking and
check-in on a single ticket for guests traveling between Hawai'i and multiple
China Airlines destinations throughout Asia.

The reciprocal partnership will allow China Airlines to place its two-letter
booking code on Hawaiian Airlines flights leaving Taipei to Honolulu on
Mondays and Fridays and Honolulu to Taipei on Sundays and Tuesdays; flights
from Honolulu to Las Vegas, Phoenix, Portland, Sacramento, San Diego, San Jose
and Seattle; and all inter-island flights.

In addition to the code share agreement, the airlines also have completed an
interline agreement that allows for seamless travel to additional destinations
in Asia such as Okinawa, Manila, Ho Chi Minh City, Hong Kong, and Jakarta.
Through the arrangement, travelers can book single-ticket travel combining
flights on both carriers and also enjoy one-stop check-in with bags checked
through customers' final destinations.

Both Hawaiian Airlines and China Airlines are also finalizing another
reciprocal partnership that will allow their respective frequent flyer members
to earn and redeem miles for travel on either carrier.

Hawaiian Airlines launched non-stop service between Taipei, Taiwan and
Honolulu yesterday, further extending the airline's strategic expansion into
Asia. The new service operates three times a week between Honolulu and Taipei,
and capitalizes on the extension of the U.S. Visa Waiver Program to cover
citizens of Taiwan.
