Hawaiian Airlines completed the month of June 2016 as the US airline industry’s top-
ranked carrier for on-time performance, the US Department of Transportation reported today.

Hawaiian Airlines’ flights arrived on schedule 91.1% of the time, earning the DOT’s top ranking for punctuality. Hawaiian also ranked third in fewest flight cancellations for the month of June with .2%, representing 11 cancellations out of 6,731 flights.

Hawai‘i’s largest and longest-serving airline provides daily non-stop service to Hawai‘i 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.

Hawaiian Airlines also operates approximately 160 daily flights between the Hawaiian Islands using Boeing 717-200 aircraft.

The DOT’s monthly Air Travel Consumer Report ranking the nation’s 16 largest air carriers is available online.
