The combined company would maintain both airlines’ brands, an unusual move in an industry where waves of acquisitions have led to four big brands dominating the US market.

The companies said Alaska will pay $18 in cash for each share of Hawaiian, whose stock closed Friday at $4.86 after losing just over half its value in the year so far.

Officials from both companies called the deal a chance to combine two carriers with few overlapping routes, creating a stronger company to compete with the nation’s Big Four: American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Southwest Airlines, and United Airlines.

It would also create a “clear leader” in the lucrative $8 billion Hawaiian market, Alaska CEO Ben Minicucci said in a conference call with investors.
