Hawaiian Airlines passenger traffic increases 0.5 percent

Hawaiian Airlines’ passenger traffic edged up 0.5 percent in October from the year-earlier period as the company expanded its route network and offered more seats.

The state’s largest carrier said Thursday it transported 971,817 people compared with 967,377 in October 2017. Available seat miles, or one seat transported one mile, jumped 6.3 percent to 1.71 billion from 1.61 billion. That boosted revenue passenger miles 3.6 percent to 1.46 billion from 1.41 billion.

Hawaiian filled fewer of its seats, though, during the month as its load factor fell 2.1 percentage points to 85.6 percent from 87.7 percent.
