"This financing represents a significant landmark for Hawaiian and we are very pleased with the results," said Scott Topping, Chief Financial Officer.  "The fixed interest rates on each of the Class A and Class B certificates are the lowest ever achieved by an airline via a public EETC offering without an insurance wrap.  The offering opens a significant new source of future capital for Hawaiian and reflects our financial strength, the confidence that capital market investors have in our strategy and the enduring value of our investment in the Airbus aircraft." 

The $444,540,000 issuance is comprised of $328,260,000 of Class A Certificates, having an interest rate of 3.90% per annum and a final expected distribution date of January 15, 2026, and $116,280,000 of Class B Certificates, having an interest rate of 4.95% per annum and a final expected distribution date of January 15, 2022. 

As previously announced, each class of Certificates represents an interest in its respective pass through trust. The trusts will use the proceeds from the offering to acquire equipment notes that will be issued by the Company to finance the acquisition of six Airbus A330-200 aircraft, which will be added to the Company's fleet and are scheduled for delivery from November 2013 to October 2014.  The equipment notes will be secured by the six Airbus A330-200 aircraft being acquired.  Hawaiian Holdings, Inc. will fully and unconditionally guarantee the payment obligations of the Company under the equipment notes.
