Hawaiian Airlines Scores Well on Dept. of Transportation June Report

More good news for Hawaii's airlift scene: Hawaiian Airlines earned the airline industry’s top ranking for on-time performance in June, as reported by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) with its monthly Air Travel Consumer Report.

Hawaiian’s flights arrived as scheduled at a rate of 93.9 percent to top the listing of the 15 largest carriers covered by the DOT report. Hawaiian’s on-time performance exceeded the industry average by 13.2 percentage points.

In addition, Hawaiian ranked second in the category of fewest canceled flights during June, reporting eight cancellations out of 6,470 total flights (0.1 percent).

Hawaiian also ranked third in the category of fewest oversales, or passengers denied boarding, for the second quarter at 0.05 percent for every 10,000 passengers, as well as through the first two quarters at 0.20 percent per 10,000 passengers (DOT reports oversales quarterly.)

Hawaiian provides daily nonstop service to Hawaii from 11 gateway cities in North America – more cities than any other carrier – using Airbus A330-200 and Boeing 767-300 aircraft, making it the only carrier to offer wide-body, twin-aisle aircraft for all transpacific flights.
