Hawaiian Airlines flight 852 made history on Dec. 21. 

Guests on the flight from Haneda Airport in Japan to Kona International Airport were greeted by six flight attendants fluent in Hawaiian. 

Hawaiian Airlines crew also announced all boarding and in-flight announcements in olelo Hawaii, followed by Japanese and English translations.

Every passenger was greeted with kukui nut lei before departing Japan and fresh flower lei upon leaving the plane in Kona. They also received a travel-size language book, a “how-to” guide for ordering drinks in Hawaiian and a commemorative certificate of participation.

Hawaiian Airlines also made history by flying with a native language flight between Hawaii and the U.S. Mainland during its flight from HNL to Las Vegas in December.
