Profit at Hawaiian Airlines surged more than 400% in 2009, a result termed "remarkable" by CEO Mark Dunkerley in light of economic conditions. "With lower prices and the hard work of everyone ... we overcame the effects of an economic recession and the attentions of a new entrant on our inter-island routes to post our company's best-ever results," Dunkerley said. Operating income was up 17% to $107.5 million on a 3.7% increase in traffic.
