Hawaiian Airlines brings ‘Aloha’ Spirit in campaign from MullenLowe LA

Hawaiian Airlines
(Hawaiian Air wants you to get away)

Americans are terrible at taking vacations and after the last 18 months of stay-at-home orders, they need a vacation more than ever. MullenLowe LA has created a new campaign for Hawaiian Airlines ‘The Keepers of Vacation’ which launches this week.  

As the only leisure-focused airline based in Hawaii, Hawaiian Airlines’ culture is centered around the aloha spirit. Their unique values give the airline permission to act as the protectors of vacation with one mission: taking Americans from the mundane world of overworking to the majestic destination of Hawaii. The campaign leans into Hawaiian Airlines’ DNA of an exclusively leisure-focused, Hawaii-based airline to showcase their expertise, warm hospitality, and aloha spirit.

The new creative effort inspires people to dream of a Hawaii experience far from their everyday lives. Meticulously crafted by award-winning directors Zhang and Knight, they show how easily a dull or stressful situation can be transformed into the tranquil beauty of Hawaii.

Each spot begins in a mundane, everyday space – a lonely, sterile office or a chaotic family home. A moment later, one of the people trapped in each environment happens across an evocative image of Hawaii, transporting their thoughts to a dream vacation. As they wistfully look at the photographs, Hawaiian Airlines flight attendants magically and gracefully sweep into the space.

Their friendly warmth and caring service effortlessly deconstruct the everyday surroundings, transforming one into a beautiful beach and the other into a majestic rainforest. The guests walk off into their ideal vacations, perfectly facilitated by Hawaiian Airlines. Watch below:
