Hawaiian Airlines, in collaboration with The Walt Disney Studios, unveiled October 15 the first of three custom Airbus A330 aircraft being adorned with imagery from the highly anticipated, CG-animated comedy adventure “Moana.”
The inaugural decal design features four characters from the movie on Hawaiian’s fuselage as they take off on a wayfinding journey, including the demigod Maui, the adventurous teenager Moana, and her two friends: Heihei the rooster and Pua the pig.
HAWAIIAN AIRLINES COMMITMENT TO VOYAGING
As a proud sponsor of The Polynesian Voyaging Society’s Malama Honua Worldwide Voyage, Hawaiian Airlines invites Moana fans and guests to learn more about today’s celestial navigation. Malama Honua, to care for our Island Earth, is a four-year journey by the Polynesian voyaging canoe, Hokule‘a, and the research crew, Hikianalia, across the Earth’s oceans.
Powered by the wind, guided by the stars, and steered by the knowledge of ancient Polynesian navigators, the voyage will cover a total of 47,000 nautical miles and visit 85 ports in 26 countries.
The Moana themed aircraft will be flying across the globe, with regularly scheduled U.S. domestic routes as well as to international destinations including Brisbane and Sydney, Australia; Osaka and Tokyo, Japan; and Auckland, New Zealand all on the map through March of 2017. If fans want, they can also track the course of each “Moana”themed plane in real time at HawaiianAirlines.com/Moana.
