Hawaiian Airlines recorded the best results in August among the nation’s airlines for punctuality, fewest flight cancellations, and fewest mishandled baggage reports, as reported today in the Air Travel Consumer Report issued by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT).

Hawaiian ranked #1 nationally in all three categories led by its performance as the nation’s best on-time airline in August, with 95.6 percent of its flights arriving on schedule.
