Hawaii is known for its easygoing and relaxed approach to life but when it comes to punctuality, no airline can beat Hawaiian Airlines. According to the new statistics that has been released by UK Travel analyst OAG, in 2016 at least 89.87% of the flights of Hawaii’s flag carrier have arrived or departed within 15 minutes of their scheduled time.
OAG processed figures from about 54 million flight records from their full-year data of 2016. This is the largest number of flights that have been tracked in a single year. OAG says that both airports and airlines must be applauded for facing the challenge of record-breaking passenger volumes and expanding flight networks.
If you will compare Hawaii Airlines to other forms of transport, you will notice the incredible accuracy of scheduling and delivery of on-time performance whether it is a 17-hour long haul service or a 1-hour connecting flight. The story of Hawaii Airlines is one for the books for having shot up the scoreboard from 9th place to number 1 in the last 12 months of 2016.
On the basis of punctuality, the flag carriers of Panama (Copa Airlines) and the Netherlands (KLM) placed second and third this year while the Australian flag carrier Qantas was in fourth place. Qantas was also the best placed airline in the Asia-Pacific region.
The largest airline that made it to OAG’s top 20 list was Delta Airlines for gaining a ranking of 84% for remarkable achievement as an airline operating an overwhelming number of flights. For travelers who keep a close watch over their flight schedules, the most punctual of major airports for the 2nd year in a row is Tokyo Haneda while Detroit and Atlanta are the best in the United States. The UK is the home of the best performing medium airport (Birmingham) and small airport (Newcastle).
Some travelers have tight schedules and they have to be in a meeting direct from the airport. The best option is airport transfers Port Douglas to Cairns airport or from cairns airport to port Douglas. As soon as you have collected your baggage, you will be on your way.
