Hawaiian Airlines set a new record in its 84-year history with 9,935,743 passengers transported in 2013. That's up 4.8 percent from the previous year.
Hawaiian has led all U.S. carriers in on-time performance for each of the nine past years, as reported by the U.S. Department of Transportation. Consumer surveys by Conde Nast Traveler, Travel + Leisure and Zagat have all ranked Hawaiian the highest of all domestic airlines serving Hawaii.
Hawaiian is Hawaii's biggest and longest-service airline and the largest provider of passenger air service from its primary visitor markets on the U.S. mainland. Hawaiian also offers non-stop service to Hawaii from more U.S. gateway cities than any other airline, along with service from Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Australia, New Zealand, American Samoa and Tahiti.
New non-stop service will begin between Honolulu and Beijing in April 2014, subject to government approvals.
Hawaiian provides about 160 jet flights daily between the Hawaiian Islands.
