Hawaiian Airlines customer numbers up 4.7% in 2015

Hawaiian Airlines, Inc., a subsidiary of Hawaiian Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: HA), flew a record 10,672,667 customers in 2015, a 4.7 percent increase over the previous year, the company said.

The record number of customers Hawaiian transported in 2015 marks 11 straight years of passenger growth as the airline expanded its network, providing travelers more options to fly between Hawai´i and Asia, New Zealand and Australia, as well as North America. Hawaiian Airlines´ first 10 million passengers took nearly 40 years to carry from 1929 to 1967. In 2014, Hawaiian for the first time welcomed 10 million guests in a year.

Hawaiian® has led all US carriers in on-time performance for each of the past 11 years (2004-2014) as reported by the US Department of Transportation. Now in its 86th year of continuous service, Hawaiian is Hawai´i´s biggest and longest-serving airline, as well as the largest provider of passenger air service from its primary visitor markets on the US Mainland.
