(HONOLULU) -- For the seventh straight year, Hawaiian Airlines ranked as the nation's number one airline for on-time performance in 2010, according to a report issued by the U.S. Department of Transportation on Thursday.
The carrier's flights averaged a punctuality rate of 92.5 percent for the year and 87.6 percent for the month of December alone. Hawaiian also led all carriers in the U.S. in on-time performance for each month of 2010.
"Being the nation's most punctual airline for seven straight years is a credit to the dedication of our employees, whose hard work drives this industry-leading performance day in and day out, year after year," said Mark Dunkerley, Hawaiian's president and CEO.
The report also found that Hawaiian had the fewest cancelled flights last year among carriers, ranking in first place for 10 of the 12 months. For the year, the carrier canceled 55 out of 67,649 total flights, which averages out to about 0.1 percent.
