The US Department of Transportation recently reported that Hawaiian Airlines was the US airline industry’s top-ranked carrier for on-time performance in May.

Hawaiian Airlines’ flights arrived on schedule 92.1% of the time, earning the DOT’s top ranking for punctuality.

Hawaiian also ranked third in fewest flight cancellations for the month of May with .3%, representing 17 cancellations out of 6,432 flights.

Hawai‘i’s largest and longest-serving airline provides daily non-stop 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.

Hawaiian Airlines also operates approximately 160 daily flights between the Hawaiian Islands using Boeing 717-200 aircraft.
