Island Air announced that for the month of January 2016, it completed 100% of its 716 scheduled flights with no cancellations, and 93.8% of its flights arrived on time.

“Despite the fact that we had several aircraft undergoing routine scheduled maintenance, our outstanding team at Island Air set an all-time company record in January with zero cancellations, and our on-time performance was the second highest it has ever been” said Island Air CEO Dave Pflieger in a company press release.

“Over the past year, every member of the Island Air team has been focused on improving our operational performance in order to provide the best possible experience for our customers. Our impressive results in January are a testament to our dedicated employees who are working hard to get us ready to resume service to Līhuʻe starting March 15,” said Pflieger.

Island Air began announcing its operational performance in September 2015. The airline plans to continue releasing flight performance data on a monthly and quarterly basis, so that current and potential customers can see how the airline is performing.

Island Air offers 224 flights each week between Oʻahu, Maui, Lānaʻi and Kauaʻi.  It is marketed as Hawaiʻi’s affordable alternative interisland airline.


*The airline notes that a flight is counted as “on time” if it arrives within 14 minutes of its scheduled arrival time, under guidelines submitted to the US Department of Transportation.
