Hawaiian Airlines remained on top in July as the nation’s most punctual carrier. 

The state’s largest airline had 88.6 percent of its domestic flights arrive on time, according to a report issued Thursday by the U.S. Department of Transportation. The national average for the 13 reporting carriers was 78.1 percent. A flight is counted as "on time" if it arrives within 15 minutes of the scheduled arrival. 

Hawaiian also ranked second in fewest flight cancellations for the month with 0.2 percent, representing 11 cancellations out of 6,955 flights.  

In other categories, Hawaiian had the fourth-fewest mishandled baggage reports with 2.48 for every 1,000 passengers and was fifth for fewest complaints with 1.01 per 100,000 passengers.
