MIAMI– Hawaiian Airlines (HA) received the title of the nation’s most punctual carrier for the 16th consecutive year by the U.S. Department of Transportation in 2019, leading all U.S. carriers in on-time performance since 2004.

Peter Ingram, president and CEO of Hawaiian Airlines, said, “our more than 7,400 employees know how important it is for our guests to be on time, whether they are starting a family vacation in Hawaiʻi, or traveling between our islands for business or to visit their ʻohana.”

Ingram added, “I couldn’t be prouder of their accomplishment. We recently observed our 90th anniversary and this ‘Sweet 16’ is definitely another achievement worth celebrating.”

Last year, HA launched a five-times-weekly service between Honolulu’s Daniel K. Inouye (HNL) and Boston Logan (BOS) international airports.

HA’s A321neo fleet services new nonstop flights between Maui’s Kahului Airport (OGG) and both Sacramento (SMF) and McCarran (LAS) international airports, as well as expanded service between San Francisco International Airport (SFO) and HNL.

In March 2019, HA will introduce its third daily nonstop flight between Tokyo’s Haneda Airport (HND) and the Hawaiian Islands, several months ahead of the 2020 Olympic Summer Games.
