Hawaiian Airlines: Record 11.8 million passengers in 2018
Hawaiian Airlines today announced that it welcomed a record 11,840,178 guests in 2018, a 2.9 percent increase over the previous year. The record number of passengers in 2018 marks 14 straight years of growth as Hawaiian continues to expand its network and fleet, providing travelers with more options to fly to, from, and within the Hawaiian Islands than any other carrier.
Announcing its system-wide traffic statistics for the month, quarter, and full year today, Hawaiian Airlines, Inc. also updated its expectations for certain fourth quarter 2018 financial metrics.
The carrier took delivery of nine A321neo aircraft in 2018, bringing the total size of its A321neo fleet to 11 aircraft. The A321neo will help the airline build upon its already strong U.S. West Coast presence, including new daily non-stop service to Maui’s Kahului Airport from Portland, Sacramento and San Diego international airports, as well as to Honolulu’s Daniel K. Inouye International Airport from Long Beach.
The airline will also begin new five-times-a-week non-stop service to Honolulu from Boston’s Logan International Airport on April 4.
