Island Air Completes Nearly 100 Percent of Flights for February

Island Air, which performs regional flights in Hawaii, recently announced that for the month of February, it completed 99.9 percent of its 670 scheduled flights with one cancellation, and 87.6 percent of its flights arrived on time.  

As is the case with major airlines that report their on-time information to the U.S. Department of Transportation, a flight is counted as "on time" if it arrives within 14 minutes of its scheduled arrival time.

“Island Air’s operational performance continues to make steady improvements, as our entire team remains focused and has made contributions to providing customers with the best interisland travel experience,” said Les Murashige, CEO of Island Air, in a written release.

Island Air began announcing its operational performance in September of 2015. The airline plans to continue releasing flight performance data on a monthly and quarterly basis, so that current and potential customers can see how the airline is performing as the carrier continues to improve and position itself for a strong future as Hawaii’s affordable alternative inter-island airline.

Island Air will resume service to Kauai on Tuesday, March 15, with six round-trip flights between Honolulu and Lihue, and connections to and from Kahului, Maui.
