Hawaiian Airlines implements new health measures to combat COVID-19

Hawaiian Airlines has enhanced its health measures throughout its operations by requiring travellers to wear face coverings and creating more personal space at check-in, boarding and during the flight.

The airline, whose airport employees and flight attendants already wear face masks, also recently introduced electrostatic spraying of cabins – a safe disinfecting technology that provides additional and effective protection against coronaviruses.

Hawaiian Airlines takes partnership with Kealopiko to the next level

When Hawaiian Airlines brand director Alisa Onishi received a call from Kealopiko co-founder Jamie Makasobe asking if Hawaiian was interested in shipping masks from California to Hawaii, she immediately agreed to not only provide complimentary transportation, but also sponsor the project.

“Our great design partner, Kealopiko, reached out to us prior to the mayor of Honolulu mandating masks to be used in public spaces,” Onishi said.

“And having recently launched our new inflight amenity kits together, Kealopiko knew that we’d be up for supporting this great effort.”

This meant Hawaiian Airlines would cover the cost of manufacturing and transporting 2,000 masks that would go to its local partners, as well as carry an additional 3,000 masks shipped from Los Angeles, where Kealopiko’s facility is able to mass-produce masks in partnership with Smartees Hawaii.
