Hawaiian Airlines revealed the first of three MOANA themed Airbus A330 planes recently at Honolulu International Airport. Auli‘i Cravalho, who lends her voice to Moana, and Dwayne Johnson, the voice of demigod Maui, were among the first to see the design that features imagery of four characters from the upcoming film. Maui, Moana, Heihei the rooster and Pua the pig.
The planes will fly on Hawaiian’s 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 through March 2017. Directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker, produced by Osnat Shurer, and featuring music by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mark Mancina and Opetaia Foa‘i, MOANA sails into U.S. theaters on Nov. 23, 2016.
Guests traveling to any of Hawaiian’s domestic or international destinations will enjoy special inflight entertainment to include an exclusive welcome video inspired by the film, the “Moana” movie trailer, and Cravalho’s casting video. The airline will also offer co-branded, limited-edition products such as blankets, towels and children’s and adult apparel. These items and more will be available for purchase inflight on select Hawaiian routes or online at Shop.HawaiianAirlines.com.
Hawaiian also announced the Hawaiian Airlines Wayfinder Caption Contest which begins today and runs through Oct. 23 for fans in the United States, Australia and New Zealand.
