These Maori dancers from Honolulu’s Polynesian Cultural Center were on hand at the Honolulu International Airport on Wednesday to perform a traditional ‘haka’ for guests departing on Hawaiian Airlines’ inaugural flight direct from Honolulu to Auckland, New Zealand.
Hawaiian is now the only U.S. carrier flying that route. The airline has partnerships with All Nippon Airways (ANA), Delta Air Lines, Korean Air, JetBlue, Virgin America, Virgin Atlantic and Virgin Australia, so if you’ve got miles on those airlines you can use them for this trip.
