THE FOLLOWING IS AN ARTICLE PUBLISHED IN THE HONOLULU ADVERTISER ON JANUARY 22, 2002 ISLAND VOICES Airline merger is no bailout By Glenn R. Zander President and CEO of Aloha Airlines While opposition to a merger is expected and there have been many sincere expressions of concern by airline employees and consumers, there is one group that seeks to portray the merger of Aloha Airgroup and Hawaiian Airlines as a "bailout" of Aloha. This simply is not the case. Disregarding the facts, dissident voices have attempted to create the myth of a "strong, profitable Hawaiian Air" bailing out "poor, loss-making Aloha." While one can tolerate the natural reaction of frustrated and unhappy employees, one must defend one's record against one-sided commentaries like that of Alex Salkever (Island Voices, Jan. 13). It is time for the facts to intrude on this issue. For the most recent annual reporting period, Hawaiian's results reported to the SEC compared to Aloha Airgroup are as follows: Net income/(loss) (in millions of dollars) HAWAIIAN ALOHA 1998 $8,205 $4,492 1999 (29,267) (1,447) 2000 (18,615) (6,671) 3-Year Total (39,677) (3,626) Although I am not thrilled with Aloha's results, this is clearly not a picture of a thriving Hawaiian helping out Aloha. Nor was 2000 the "strong year" for Hawaiian asserted by Salkever. The agreement to merge Aloha and Hawaiian airlines involved intense negotiations between Hawaiian's owners and management, Aloha's owners and management and TurnWorks, the investment firm headed by Greg Brenneman. Attorneys, consultants and financial advisers on all sides participated in the negotiations and due-diligence process. Additionally, Hawaiian's board of directors appointed an independent committee that retained its own legal counsel and financial adviser to assure the fairness of the transaction. All of these parties concurred that the agreement was fair and preferable to other options. The fact is that Hawaiian and Aloha have both been losing money operating interisland services for years. The events of Sept. 11 necessitated that action be taken to deal with that situation. We are not dealing with a failing company. We are dealing with a business: interisland passenger transportation. With a merger of the two airlines, the state gets a single, financially strong Hawai'i-based carrier to provide affordable, reliable interisland service with the potential to grow, create new jobs and boost the state's economy by adding convenient routes to bring more visitors from new markets. Readers of your news columns should be aware that the new entity, Aloha Holdings Inc., is going to great lengths to address concerns about pricing, schedules and possible job reductions. Following discussion with the state attorney general's office, announcements were made regarding caps on airfares and cargo rates and certain guarantees that can be made at this time to keep the jobs of most of the employees of both airlines. Other key decisions will be made in concert with union leaders representing the workers. With regard to the public's fear of monopolistic practices, bear in mind that a true monopoly will not exist as long as there are opportunities for others to enter the market. Because the state controls the airport system, there are no obstacles to the entry of competitors, other than the ability of the interisland market to sustain them. The way for the new airline to avoid ruinous competition is to provide the best possible service at the most affordable prices for Hawai'i's people. Think about it: Hawai'i's flagship airline will have to keep the home-team advantage if it is to prosper and grow. Residents of this state cannot rely on Mainland-based carriers to do the right thing for Hawai'i. Aloha and Hawaiian are proud companies that have competed for more than half a century. Unprecedented changes in the interisland market have challenged us both to adapt. While the idea may be difficult to accept, this merger of equals is the right answer for both companies.
