Check out Hawaiian Airline’s fascinating new video series

Watch out for Ola Pono (on Living Well), which is Hawaiian Airline’s fascinating new video series.

Guests on-board Hawaiian Airlines’ trans-pacific flights now have access to an engaging new video series called Olo Pono featuring health and wellness content produced exclusively by the airline for its in-flight programming.

The Ola Pono (Live Well) series features informative and entertaining health and wellness advice with a Hawaiian cultural backdrop of three main environments: land, air and sea.

AIR – with Honolulu movement specialist Wainani Arnold

For the Ola Pono debut, Hawaiian partnered with Arnold, founder of Wainani Wellness Center, to create three videos of stretching and breathing exercises that can be practiced while on board and at the airport. Arnold is a trained choreographer and hula dancer with over 15 years’ experience teaching yoga, pilates, gyrotonic and dance. She credits hula with planting the seed for her growth in all forms of dance and mind-body movement modalities.

“Consistent, controlled movements while flying benefit travelers of all ages and can help with blood circulation, stiff joints and jetlag,” she said.

“The goal is to take care of yourself during the flight so you can get the most out of your Hawai‘i vacation.”

 

SEA – with waterman Brian Keaulana

The series’ second chapter showcases the treasures buried deep within Hawaii’s waters.

Renowned Hawaiian surfer, lifeguard and waterman Brian Keaulana and his daughter, Ha‘a Keaulana, take viewers on a journey across Mākaha on the west side of O‘ahu as they explore the island’s rich history and powerful connection to the ocean, while sharing tips on how guests can experience the healing and cleansing properties of our waters.

LAND – with Chef Lee Anne Wong

The final chapter highlights Hawaii’s unique agriculture as Hawaiian Airlines’ executive Chef Chef Lee Anne Wong, owner of Koko Head Café in Honolulu, visits farms and local markets across the islands to discuss the nutritional benefits of local produce and offers culinary tips on how to create recipes at home.

“We understand the main purpose of in-flight programming is to entertain, but we knew we could do that while also providing useful and effective content that would enhance the guest experience,” said Evan Nomura, product manager, in-flight entertainment at Hawaiian Airlines.

“We’re excited to launch this series featuring local experts and look forward to creating more exclusive content.”
