A big mahalo (thank you in Hawaiian) to Hawaiian Airlines for getting passengers to their destinations on time, yet again. The Honolulu, Hawaii-based carrier announced today, September 12, 2013, that it scored the highest marks for best on-time performance for the sixth consecutive month this year, and fewest canceled flights among the nation’s 16 largest carriers in July, as reported today by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT).
According to its press release the airline arrived on schedule 94.6 percent of the time throughout July, earning it DOT’s #1 ranking for on-time performance. In addition, the DOT reported that Hawaiian Airlines ranked first overall in the category of fewest flight cancellations for July at 0.1 percent, representing four cancellations out of 6,646 total flights.
Hawaiian offers more flights than the mainland US than any other carrier coupled with a special, aloha-filled inflight experience (free food in coach, friendly service and island-style ambiance). Hawaiian Airlines A330-200 and Boeing 767-300 jets fly nonstop from 11 US gateway cities.
