Hawaiian Airlines is world’s most punctual airline

  • DENNIS ODA / DODA@STARADVERTISER.COM

    Hawaiian Airlines’ inaugural flight from Haneda, Japan, to the Kona International Airport arrived on Dec. 21.

Hawaiian Airlines ranked first in the world for punctuality last year with 89.9 percent of its flights arriving on time, according to a report released Wednesday by air travel intelligence company OAG.

The state’s largest carrier improved its position by moving up from ninth place in 2015.

An airline is considered “on time” if it arrives under 15 minutes of its scheduled arrival or departure time.

Panama-based Copa Airlines was second at 88.8 percent and KLM Royal Dutch Airlines of the Netherlands was third at 87.9 percent.

The OAG results cover 200 airlines.
