HONOLULU – March 12, 2013 - The consistent leader in schedule reliability among U.S. airlines, Hawaiian Airlines again ranked among the best in the industry for on-time performance and the avoidance of flight cancellations during the month of January, as reported today by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT).
Hawaiian scored the DOT’s second-highest ranking for punctuality, missing the top spot by a fraction of a percentage point, with its flights arriving as scheduled 92.5 percent of the time throughout the month of January.
