Hawaiian Airlines CEO departing

28th May 2002

Paul Casey, the CEO of Hawaiian Airlines will leave the company June 30. Casey,
who also is vice chairman and president of the company, said in a statement he
is “ready to take some time off.” Hawaiian Airlines chairman John Adams will
take over the CEO and president jobs until a replacement is found, according to
the company.

Casey`s name has surfaced in Hawaii in recent days as a candidate
for the executive director of the Hawaii Tourism Authority. That job currently
is filled on a voluntary basis by Richard Humphreys who took the job temporarily
after executive director Bob Fishman left the HTA last fall.

Hawaiian also reported a first-quarter loss of $18.6 million. The company said
some its expenses during the period were a $3.3 million charge related to its
failed merger with Aloha Airlines and an $8.2 million increase in wages and
benefits. The airline noted that during the quarter the total number of visitors
to Hawaii declined by 11%, and Hawaiian had a 4.4% decrease in the number of
passengers it carried compared with the same quarter last year.
