      99.1        Letter to Shareholders, dated April 1, 2003.


         On April 1, 2003, Hawaiian Holdings, Inc. (the "Company") issued a
letter to its shareholders addressing a motion filed by a creditor with the
United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Hawaii in connection with the
proceedings under chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code of Hawaiian
Airlines, Inc. ("Hawaiian Airlines"). A copy of the letter is included as
Exhibit 99.1 to, and is incorporated by reference in, this current report on
Form 8-K.

         This current report on Form 8-K contains "forward-looking statements"
within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 that
reflect the current views of the Company and Hawaiian Airlines with respect to
certain current and future events and financial performance. Such
forward-looking statements are and will be, as the case may be, subject to many
risks, uncertainties and factors relating to the operations and business
environments of the Company and Hawaiian Airlines which may cause the actual
results of the Company and Hawaiian Airlines to be materially different from any
future results, expressed or implied, in such forward-looking statements.
Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from these
forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, the following: the
ability of the Company and Hawaiian Airlines to continue as a going concern; the
ability of Hawaiian Airlines to obtain court approval with respect to motions in
the Chapter 11 proceeding prosecuted by it from time to time; the ability of
Hawaiian Airlines to develop, prosecute, confirm and consummate one or more
plans of reorganization with respect to the Chapter 11 cases; risks associated
with third parties seeking and obtaining court approval to terminate or shorten
the exclusivity period for Hawaiian Airlines to propose and confirm one or more
plans of reorganization, for the appointment of a Chapter 11 trustee or to
convert the cases to Chapter 7 cases; the ability of Hawaiian Airlines to obtain
and maintain normal terms with vendors and service providers; the ability of
Hawaiian Airlines to maintain contracts that are critical to its operations; the
potential adverse impact of the Chapter 11 cases on

the liquidity or results of operations of the Company and Hawaiian Airlines; the
ability of Hawaiian Airlines to fund and execute their business plan; the
ability of the Company and Hawaiian Airlines to attract, motivate and/or retain
key executives and associates; the ability of Hawaiian Airlines to attract and
retain customers; demand for transportation in the markets in which Hawaiian
Airlines operates; economic conditions; the effects of any hostilities or act of
war (in the Middle East or elsewhere) or any terrorist attack; labor costs;
financing costs; the cost and availability of aircraft insurance; aviation fuel
costs; security-related costs; competitive pressures on pricing (particularly
from lower-cost competitors); weather conditions; government legislation and
regulation; consumer perceptions of the products of Hawaiian Airlines; and other
risks and uncertainties set forth from time to time in the Company's reports to
the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

         Similarly, these and other factors, including the terms of any
reorganization plan ultimately confirmed, can affect the value of the various
pre-petition liabilities of Hawaiian Airlines and the common stock and/or other
equity securities of the Company. No assurance can be given as to what values,
if any, will be ascribed in the bankruptcy proceedings to each of these
constituencies, and it is possible that the Company's equity will be
restructured in a manner that will substantially reduce or eliminate any
remaining value. Accordingly, the Company urges that the appropriate caution be
exercised with respect to existing and future investments in any of these
liabilities and/or securities.


         Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934,
the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the
undersigned hereunto duly authorized.

                                    HAWAIIAN HOLDINGS, INC.
