Hawaiian Airlines unveils sustainability-focused amenity kits
- November 26, 2019
Hawaiian Airlines has teamed up with Moloka’i-based brand Kealopiko on an exclusive collection of in-flight amenities carrying a message of sustainability. From now, guests travelling on HA flights from and to Auckland and on other international routes plus from Hawaii to select mainland US destinations (JFK/BOS) will receive amenities and soft goods adorned with white coral and fern patterns paying homage to Hawaii’s delicate natural resources.
“Embarking on this redesign, we knew we wanted a partner who could help us tell the stories of our island home,” says Avi Mannis, senior vice president of marketing at Hawaiian Airlines. “Kealopiko is a natural fit. Their sustainable production and bold, contemporary design align with our values and complement the flight experience we want to offer our guests.”
International Business Class and JFK/BOS First Class guests will be given a Hawaiian Airlines-branded canvas clutch, available in two different colorways, with the coral print and a coconut shell button. International guests seated in Extra Comfort will receive a natural felt pouch with a wood tag engraved with the ‘Ēkaha story.
Both kits include the following amenities: Bamboo comb, Comfortable socks with Hawaiian Airlines “slipper” design (international Business Class and JFK/BOS First Class only), Dental kit including a bamboo toothbrush with charcoal bristles and toothpaste, Earbuds (international Extra Comfort only), Earplugs, Hand and body balm, lip balm and hydrating mist from the airline’s private skincare line Lōli‘I, Premium sleep mask, Sample packet of Raw Elements USA reef-safe sunscreen, which Hawaiian, the sun care company’s official airline partner, introduced onboard in April 2018.
Guests seated in the Main Cabin on international flights, First Class on North America red-eye flights, and First Class on Papeete and Pago Pago will receive a coral print kraft paper pouch with earplugs, earbuds and a sleep mask in one of three collectible, Hawai‘i-inspired designs.
All amenity kits feature eco-friendly paper packaging, furthering Hawaiian’s effort to reduce single-use plastics in its fleet and throughout its operations.
