Hawaiian Airlines Celebrates 16th Consecutive Year as Most Punctual Airline in U.S.
Hawaiian Airlines announced Wednesday, that they have once again been named the most punctual U.S. airline for the 16th consecutive year. The prestigious title is based on data from the U.S. Department of Transportation.
Yesterday, Hawaiian Airlines announced that based on 2019 data from the U.S. Department of Transportation, they can lay claim to the title of most punctual airline in the U.S. for the 16th straight year. In 2019, Hawaiian flights achieved an 87.7 percent on-time rate, exceeding the U.S. industry average by 6.1 percent. In Wednesday’s announcement, Hawaiian Airlines’ President and CEO, Peter Ingram said,
“Our more that 7,400 employees know how important it is for our guests to be on time, whether they are starting a family vacation in Hawai’i, or traveling between our islands for business or to visit their ‘ohana, and I couldn’t be prouder of their accomplishment. We recently observed our 90th anniversary and this ‘Sweet 16’ is definitely another achievement worth celebrating.”
Since the carrier’s winning-streak for on-time performance began in 2004, Hawaiian has become a global airline offering service to over 240 daily inter-island, transpacific and international destinations. The airline operates a fleet of more than 60 modern jets and offers nonstop service from Hawai’i and 13 North American gateways, more than any other airline. Hawaiian Airlines also offers international service to Australia (Sydney and Brisbane), American Samoa (Pago, Pago), Japan (Tokyo-Narita/Haneda, Osaka, Sapporo, Fukuoka), New Zealand (Auckland), South Korea (Seoul) and Tahiti (Papeete).
In 2019, the carrier launched five-times weekly service between Honolulu (HNL) and Boston (BOS). Additionally, their new fleet of fuel-efficient Airbus A321neos has opened nonstop routes between Maui (OGG) and Sacramento (SMF) as well as Las Vegas (LAS). Last year, the carrier also added frequencies between Honolulu (HNL) and San Francisco (SFO). Next month, Hawaiian Airlines will offer a third daily nonstop flight between Tokyo-Haneda and the Hawaiian Islands, providing additional capacity ahead of the 2020 Olympic Summer Games.
