Hawaiian Airlines Carries Record 11.5 Million Passengers in 2017

 Hawaiian Airlines, Inc., welcomed a record 11,505,324 guests in 2017, a 4.1 percent increase over the previous year.  Hawai'i's largest and longest-serving airline today announced its system-wide traffic statistics for the month, quarter, and full year ended December 31, 2017.  The Company also updated its expectations for certain fourth quarter and full year 2017 financial metrics.

The record number of passengers in 2017 marks 13 straight years of growth as the Company continues to expand its network and fleet, providing travellers with more options to fly to, and within, the Hawaiian Islands than any other carrier.





Hawaiian took delivery of its first of 18 A321neo aircraft in November, and its second in December.  The A321neo aircraft will help the airline to build upon its already strong U.S. West Coast presence, highlighted by recent announcements that included new daily non-stop service to Maui's Kahului Airport from San Diego and Portland international airports as well as to Honolulu's Daniel K. Inouye Airport from Long Beach Airport.  Hawaiian will also expand its summer seasonal service with four additional daily summer flights in 2018, including its first international seasonal service between Narita and Honolulu international airports. Additionally, Hawaiian added its 24th A330-200 aircraft in October and its first of three expected ATR 72 turboprop aircraft in an all-cargo configuration in December.
