Hawaiian Airlines Shares Behind-The-Scenes Look At New Safety Video

Hawaiian Airlines has updated its iconic safety video. For nearly a decade, the video transported guests to destinations across the islands while employees relayed important safety information. The new video carries on the successful elements of the 2015 original and adds a refreshing spin.

2015 Hawaiian Airlines Aloha Safety Video gave customers a tour of the islands.

In the new, seven-minute video that launched last week, 57 new and original cast members – including teenagers or adults who were keiki (children) in the 2015 spot – are shown in different locations doing their favorite things, from a father and son fishing in Hilo Bay to ʻohana (family) gathering for a backyard pāʻina (party).

The 2024 Hawaiian Airlines Safety Video brings back original cast members and new ones.

The production team dedicated three months to planning a week-long filming session. Their work led to creating a storyboard that captures the essence of Hawaii, focusing on its community, culture, and landscapes in an engaging and educational way.

Here are some behind-the-scenes fun facts about Hawaiian’s newest safety video, now available on its new Boeing 787 Dreamliner fleet (and coming soon to its Airbus A330).

Keiki, all grown up

The airline assigned the same lines to continue the theme of ʻohana, keiki from the 2015 video. Here’s where you can find them:

  • Safety briefing card scene (3:52-4:12): Flight Attendant Mapuana and her daughter Hilina‘i, who are in the original shave ice scene, are featured in the new Hilo Farmer’s Market scene with Flight Attendant Maria and her daughters.
  • Emergency path lights scene (1:56-2:04): Two daughters of Flight Attendant Kanoe, Teahi and Lilinoe, who are in the original flower aisle scene at Kualoa Ranch, are now featured in the new lavender farm scene with Flight Attendant Kiakona.
  • Storing electronics scene (5:24-5:55): The Perry siblings, Brandy, Maka‘ala, and Helemalieikealapono, who were in the original Waimea Canyon scene, are now featured in the new Nā Pali Coast scene.

“Hidden” Aloha Placements
