Encouraging Passenger Increase for Hawaiian Airlines

Homes in Kapalua

While the stability of the national economy seems questionable at times, Hawaii continues to receive positive reports on industries that influence our economy. According to a recent analysis of Hawaiian Airlines' November performance, we are still seeing encouraging growth.

The reports indicate that Hawaiian Air saw a 4.5 percent increase in its passenger count last month, when compared to the same month in 2010. It may not be an enormous jump, but progress is progress, and the fact that it occurs in increments shouldn't undermine its value.

Their load factor dipped by only 0.8 percentage points, but only because they increased their capacity, and the percentage of seats that were filled total fell by just a hair despite the passenger increase. The total number of passengers that flew with the airline in November tallied up to 707,447, while there were 676,823 passengers during November of last year.

Those weren't the only encouraging numbers that Hawaiian Air had to report. Their traffic, also known as revenue passenger miles, jumped by a substantial 19 percent. They increased their passenger capacity by 20.1 percent, which explains the slight decrease in the total percentage of seats filled.

The trend of increased visitor spending continues, so that has been fantastic for Hawaii's economy as well. It's nice that good news has become regular here on Maui. On that note, if you are in the market for a West Maui home, you can browse the Maui mls listings to the left of the page, try the Maui real estate search tool, or contact me for assistance. You'll find my information at the bottom of the page. Mahalo!
