Another update for those eagerly awaiting the new Boeing 787 aircraft with a new amenity kits by Noho Home on Hawaiian Airlines.
Hawaiian Airlines has recently announced a collaboration with Hawai‘i’s renowned lifestyle brand, Noho Home, founded by my high school classmate, Jalene Kanani Bell. This partnership will introduce new in-flight amenity kits and soft goods that emphasize sustainability and the spirit of aloha.
The term “Noho” translates to “to be, to dwell, or to come from” in ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi (Hawaiian language). The designs by Noho Home are particularly noteworthy as they draw inspiration from the interiors of Hawaiian Airlines’ latest addition to their fleet, the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner.
Specifically, the premium cabin of the Dreamliner, known as the Leihōkū Suites, has motifs that resonate with the Noho Home designs. These motifs, namely Kilo Hōkū, Lele, and ʻŌlali, aim to provide both locals and tourists with a sense of belonging and comfort as they embark on their journeys. This design approach aligns seamlessly with Hawaiian’s service philosophy, Mea Hoʻokipa, which means “I am your host.”
Starting from November 6th, Business Class passengers on Hawaiian’s long-haul international routes and flights between Hawai‘i and cities like New York, Boston, and Austin will be treated to these new amenities.
These amenities, made from responsibly sourced materials, include a recycled plastic canvas bag filled with essential items. To further promote sustainability, an assortment of additional amenities will be available a la carte, reducing waste.
The Business Class will also showcase a plush quilt, mattress pad, and sleeping pillow, all adorned with the signature Kilo Hōkū and ʻŌlali designs, and made from recycled plastic.
Passengers in Extra Comfort and Main Cabin will also receive new amenity kits that feature the Lele design.
As someone who has been following closely the Hawaiian Airlines’ new Boeing 787 Dreamliner and provided a sneak peek of the business class seats in this article, I’rm looking forward to getting my hands on one of these kits. I did a short video at the corporate headquarters a few months back showcasing the new Business class seats.
The inaugural flight is April 15th to SFO and I am flying on the 16th, not international or long haul but maybe for the first few days? We shall see.
Hawaiian Airlines and Noho Home are also expanding their collaboration with a retail collection of home goods. The Hawaiian Airlines x Noho Home Leihōkū Collection will be launched on November 6th and will be available for purchase on select Hawaiian Airlines flights or directly through Noho Home.
Proud of my classmate, Imua!
