KBRA Assigns B+ Issuer Rating to Hawaiian Holdings Inc. and Hawaiian Airlines Inc. and A and BBB Preliminary Ratings to HA 2020-1 Class A and B Enhanced Equipment Trust Certificates (EETC)

5:24 pm ET July 28, 2020 (BusinessWire) Print

Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) assigns issuer ratings of B+ with a Negative Outlook to Hawaiian Holdings, Inc. and its direct wholly owned subsidiary, Hawaiian Airlines, Inc. (collectively "Hawaiian" or "HA"). KBRA also assigns an A rating to Hawaiian's proposed pass-through trust series 2020-1 $217.0 million Class A certificates due September 2027 and BBB to $45.0 million Class B certificates due September 2025, with a Negative Outlook.

The credit ratings for Hawaiian reflect our expectation that the company has sufficient level of liquidity to manage through the COVID-19 crisis. HA entered the crisis from a strong liquidity position and with modest level of near-term debt maturities. The company has taken aggressive steps to preserve liquidity by suspending dividends and share repurchase programs, deferring non-aircraft capex, delaying payments to suppliers and deferring maintenance on aircraft. The ratings are further supported by the company's strong position in the Hawaiian interisland travel market, demonstrated track record of stable operating performance and recent fleet renewal. Credit negatives include company's geographic concentration and its reliance on demand for leisure travel to the Hawaiian Islands. The company's small size, unionized workforce and diminishing access to external capital compared to its much larger U.S. peers are additional limiting factors. The Negative Outlook primarily reflects our expectations for slower recovery in demand such that HA's credit metrics will be outside its historic levels for the next 18-24 months.

The preliminary A and BBB ratings for Class A and Class B Certificates, respectively, reflect KBRA's expected loss simulation, the issuer rating of Hawaiian Airlines, Inc., the legal protection provided under Section 1110 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code ("Section 1110") and the underlying good-quality aircraft collateral pool as well as the pool's significant importance to HA's operations, which support a high likelihood of affirmation in the case of bankruptcy or restructuring of HA. The ratings also take into account the priority of payments for the senior and subordinated certificates, the payment-in-kind ("PIK") feature of up to three semi-annual interest payments (which have been put in place in lieu of a liquidity facility) and the other EETC structural protections available to the certificate holders. The Negative Outlook captures the current uncertainty of aircraft values and weak secondary market demand.
