Hawaiian Airlines announced its system wide traffic statistics for the month of November and year-to-date showing continued growth in both counts.

Hawaiian Airlines, a subsidiary of Hawaiian Holdings Inc., flew 791,033 passengers in November 2012 compared to 707,447  in November 2012; an 11.8% increase.

In year-to-date figures, Hawaiian Airlines flew 8,671,809 passengers in 2012 through November 2012, while 7,925,659 passengers were transported in 2011 through November 2011.

In terms of seating capacity utilized, Hawaiian Airlines had 82.4% of its seats used by passengers in November 2012 compared to 84.4% for the same month in 2011. For year-to-date through November 2012, 83.5% of the seats were used compared to 84.5% of the seats the year before for the same period. Presumably this is due to an increase in the number of seats.
