Hawaiian Airlines’ passenger traffic up 4%

Hawaiian Airlines carried 4% more passengers in August than a year ago.

The state’s largest carrier transported 1,062,375 compared with 1,021,383 in August 2018. The airline’s load factor, or the percentage of seats filled, gained 4 percentage points to 88.4% from 84.4%

Revenue passenger miles, or one paying passenger transported one mile, increased 2.8% to 1,601,769 from 1,558,394. Available seat miles, or one seat transported one mile, dipped 1.9% to 1,812,484 from 1,847,326.

For the year, Hawaiian’s passenger total is off 1.4% at 7,921,772, compared with 8,030,260 in the year-earlier period.

In 2018 Hawaiian carried a record 11.8 million passengers.

ON THE MOVE

Atlas Insurance Agency has announced the following:

>> David Ching has been awarded the Certified Environmental, Safety & Health Trainer certification by the Board of Certified Safety Professionals. Ching, a risk consultant with Atlas Insurance for 12 years, is the seventh person in Hawaii to receive the designation and also holds certification as a construction health and safety technician.

>> Joey Barroso has been promoted to risk consultant in its Risk Control and Claims Management Unit. Barroso also holds certification in OSHA Hazard Recognition Training for General Industry.

>> Chris Wong has been hired as an associate risk consultant, previously an intern at Atlas Insurance and certified in OSHA 510 and OSHA 511.

Correction: Hawaiian Airlines does not report unit cost per person in its monthly traffic statistics. A business brief on B3 in Tuesday’s paper was incorrect on the terminology. Revenue passenger miles, or one paying passenger transported one mile, did increase, however.
