Hawaiian Airlines (Honolulu) continued its on-time performance streak in 2013, leading all U.S. carriers in punctuality for the 10th consecutive year as reported today by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT).

Hawai’i’s largest and longest-serving airline averaged a 93.3 percent on-time performance ranking for the full year 2013, earning the top ranking in 11 of the 12 months and exceeding the industry average for the year by 15 percentage points.

In December, Hawaiian Airlines also ranked #1 for fewest cancellations, with 11 out of 6,032 total flights — or 0.2 percent.

Hawaiian Airlines provides daily nonstop 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. The airline is also the leading provider of air service between the islands of Hawai’i.
