Island Air recently announced that for the month of February 2016, it completed 99.95 of its 670 scheduled flights with one cancellation, and 87.6% of its flights arrived on time.

“Island Air’s operational performance continues to make steady improvements, as our entire team remains focused and has made contributions to providing customers with the best interisland travel experience,” said Island Air CEO Les Murashige.

Island Air began announcing its operational performance in September 2015. The airline plans to continue releasing flight performance data on a monthly and quarterly basis, so that current and potential customers can see how the airline is performing as it continues to improve and position itself for a strong future as Hawaiʻi’s affordable, alternative interisland airline.

Island Air resumed service to Kaua‘i on Tuesday, March 15, with six round-trip flights between Honolulu and Līhu‘e, and connections to and from Kahului, Maui.

As is the case with major airlines that report their on-time information to the U.S. Department of Transportation, a flight is counted as “on time” if it arrives within 14 minutes of its scheduled arrival time.

Island Air operational performance numbers reflect system-wide operations, based on all scheduled flights, using OAG (air travel intelligence company),  published arrival times and Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS) data. Because Island Air does not account for at least 1 percent of U.S. industrywide domestic scheduled passenger revenues, Island Air’s performance data is not reflected in the U.S. Department of Transportation monthly Air Travel Consumer Report, which currently tracks the performance and punctuality of 13 of the nation’s largest airlines that are required to submit data.
