Hawaiian Airlines Selects OpenPages SOX Express for Sarbanes-Oxley Compliance

WALTHAM, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 5, 2005 -- OpenPages, the leading provider of enterprise governance, risk and compliance management (GRCM) solutions, today announced that Hawaiian Airlines (AMEX: HA) and (PCX: HA) has selected OpenPages Sarbanes-Oxley Express (SOX Express) for its Sarbanes-Oxley compliance initiatives. Hawaiian Airlines will deploy SOX Express to automate the company's ongoing test and review of its internal controls documentation in order to reduce the time and resource costs associated with Section 404 and 302 compliance.

Hawaiian Airlines, the nation's number one on-time carrier, is recognized as one of the best airlines in America. Readers of two prominent national travel magazines, Condé Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure, have both rated Hawaiian as the top domestic airline serving Hawaii in their most recent rankings, and the fifth best domestic airline overall. Celebrating its 75th year of continuous service, Hawaiian is Hawaii's biggest and longest-serving airline, and the second largest provider of passenger air service between Hawaii and the U.S. mainland. Hawaiian offers nonstop service to Hawaii from more U.S. gateway cities than any other airline. Hawaiian also provides approximately 100 daily jet flights among the Hawaiian Islands, as well as service to Australia, American Samoa and Tahiti.
