Hawaiian Airlines remains the nation’s most on-time airline for the 13th consecutive year, according to a report by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT).

The Islands’ hometown carrier averaged a 91.1 percent timeliness performance rating in 2016, exceeding the industry average for the year by 9.7 percentage points. Hawaiʻi’s largest airline also ranked first for fewest flight cancellations with 0.1 percent, or nine out of 6,347 flights.

“It’s no secret that our more than 6,000 employees work passionately every day to ensure our guests arrive at their destination on-time,” said Mark Dunkerley, president and CEO of Hawaiian Airlines. “Our success the past 13 years is a direct result of their hard work, and I continue to be inspired by their dedication to our guests.”

Last month, air travel intelligence company OAG also ranked Hawaiian Airlines as the world’s most on-time airline out of all global airlines and airports for 2016.

The DOT’s monthly Air Travel Consumer Report ranks the nation’s 16 largest airline companies.
