Hawaiian reports third quarter financial results


Hawaiian Holdings, Inc., parent company of Hawaiian Airlines, has reported its financial results for the third quarter of 2013.

Third Quarter 2013 Financial Results

* Adjusted net income, reflecting economic fuel expense, of $36.8 million or $0.69 per diluted share.

* GAAP net income of $40.6 million or $0.76 cents per diluted share.

* Available seat miles (ASMs) increase of 9.0% year-over-year.

* Passenger revenue per available seat mile (PRASM) increase of 0.2% and operating revenue per available seat per mile (RASM) increase of 0.1%.

* Cost per available seat mile (CASM), excluding fuel, increase of 2.1% year-over-year.

* CASM increase of 1.5% year-over-year.

Mark Dunkerley, the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer, commented that “our third quarter results are a good step towards improving financial performance. The tide of industry capacity between the US West Coast and Hawai‘i is beginning to recede and our new international routes are maturing, both of which are helpful developments. The strengthening of the US dollar against our major foreign currencies is pushing the other way. Indeed, were it not for foreign exchange effects, our third quarter results would have been the best in the company’s history.”
