A new study revealed that Maui’s Kahului Airport (OGG) is one of the best airports in the country when it comes to on-time performance.

OGG ranked the third best, with one of the lowest percentages of canceled flights (roughly 0.5%) for all of 2018.

Salt Lake City took the top spot.

New York’s LaGuardia had the worst track record, winter storms a factor, forcing many flights to call it quits last winter.

Researchers evaluated the latest data — released this week — from the Bureau of Transportation Statistics. The data included newly updated information on cancellations for all US airports last year. The experts calculated all the cancellation percentages and published an updated ranking.

Looking ahead, the experts predict that the grounding of Boeing 737 Max jets will inflate cancellation rates for many airports nationwide when 2019 percentages are calculated.
