The livery of the new 48-passenger ATR-42 aircraft was created by renowned Hilo-based renowned artist Sig Zane and his son Kuha‘o. They incorporated Hawaiian Airlines’ interisland route map as a basis for the design, which weaves three kapa patterns: piko, representing ancestry and progeny; manu, representing both a bird in flight and the prow of a canoe, the traditional form of migration; and kalo, representing family.  The aircraft are named after the winds of the islands: Holo Kaomi (Paomaʻi, Lāna‘i); Kaiahulu (Waianae, Oahu); and Hikipua (Halawa, Molokai).  

The ‘Ohana by Hawaiian operation creates more than 100 new Hawai‘i-based jobs in various areas of air transportation including pilots, flight attendants and mechanics as well as ground-handling and customer service positions. Hawaiian Airlines handles reservations and sales for the new operation, allowing the interisland flights to integrate seamlessly into Hawaiian’s well-established route network. The service will operate out of gates 49 and 50 in Honolulu.
