The federal Bureau of Transportation Statistics said Tuesday that domestic flight cancellations by U.S. airlines reached an all-time low in September.

The BTS said the airlines canceled 0.3 percent of their scheduled domestic flights in September 2016.

That’s the lowest rate since January 1995, the BTS said in a news release.

The previous low was 0.4 percent in September 2015, the bureau said.
