The airline offers connecting service from Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, Las Vegas and other West Coast cities. “The deep cultural connections between our islands and the islands of Aotearoa make New Zealand a natural destination for Hawaiian and for our singular brand of authentic Hawaiian hospitality,” airline President and Chief Executive Mark Dunkerley said in a statement.

In the latest sign of California's declining movie market share, director James Cameron announced he will shoot the three sequels to his Oscar-winning blockbuster "Avatar" in New Zealand. Cameron's Lightstorm Entertainment will do the performance-capture work on the movie in Los Angeles at MBS Media Campus (formerly known as Manhattan Beach Studios).  However, the live-action portion of the production will film in New Zealand, following a similar pattern to the original 2009 film, Cameron and his partner, Jon Landau, announced Monday.
