The Name

‘Ohana, the Hawaiian word for family, conveys the mission of our new operation: bringing people together. ‘Ohana by Hawaiian anchors us to our legacy and vision of connecting all island communities through flight, making it easier for everyone to share time together as one ‘ohana.

The Design

The design motif for the modern ATR 42 aircraft was created by renowned Hilo-based artist Sig Zane and his son Kuhao, who incorporated Hawaiian Airlines’ interisland route map as a basis for the design. Three kapa patterns were weaved together as one design: 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 Meaning Behind the Design

The piko symbol is derived from patterns seen in braided ti leaves.

Manu : Bird

The manu symbol is derived from the shape of a bird in flight.

Prow of the wa'a (canoe)
