Hawaiian Airlines Is Encouraging Responsible Travel to the Islands With New In-flight Video

Hawaiian Airlines is encouraging people to travel responsibly in Hawaii in a new video the carrier will play before landing in the island paradise.

The video, which runs for five minutes, asks visitors to “Travel Pono,” or “explore with care” as they land on one of the state’s islands, the airline shared with Travel + Leisure. The message is woven in with gorgeous views of the mountains, deep blue water, and amazing wildlife that make Hawaii such a unique and special destination.

In the video, Hawaiian Airlines crew members, including a pilot and flight attendant, share ways to tread lightly on the islands, offering tips like carrying your own trash, keeping your distance from wildlife (ignoring this one can lead to hefty fines), and using a reef-safe sunscreen.

Biden on Thursday issued an executive order directing federal agencies to require international air travelers to quarantine upon U.S. arrival.
