The celebrity was announcing the collaboration between Hawaiian and his sustainable water brand.
Jason Momoa, who is known for his roles in the movies Aquaman and Game of Thrones, surprised passengers on a Hawaiian Airlines aircraft by dressed as a flight attendant and giving out water bottles. Mananalu, the actor’s green water business, and Hawaiian Airlines have teamed up to provide eco-friendly drinking water on board flights.
This week, a video of Hollywood star Jason Momoa going around giving out water to passengers on a Hawaiian Airlines flight went viral.
Momoa is seen sharing aluminum bottles of his sustainable Mananalu Pure water with passengers in an 11-second footage posted by TikTok user @livinglikekylee.
Before shocking Honolulu-bound travelers, the actor flew to Los Angeles International Airport with his son Nakoa-Wolf, 13, and daughter Lola Iolani, 14.
On a Hawaiian Airlines flight, according to Momoa, he had the idea to start his own water business. Mananulu was subsequently established in 2019. The business uses environmentally friendly aluminum packaging and triple-filtered, electrolyte-added, pH-neutral drinking water.
“Why can’t we have aluminum? It’s a dream come true. There is sparkling water, sparkling beer, soda, and soft drinks available. Why do I need to drink this one drop of water? So this is my first opportunity to do so. I will therefore announce it on Hawaiian Airlines. I can’t wait to get home.”
In actuality, the Aquaman actor distributed more than simply water. The Hawaiian native said that every traveler on the trip received a gift of 10,000 miles in a video shared to Instagram.
Momoa returned to his hometown in Honolulu via a flight from Los Angeles in time for his 43rd birthday celebrations.
In April, Mananalu and Hawaiian Airlines announced their agreement, under which each Premium Cabin traveler on Hawaiian’s flights to and from the US East Coast and abroad would get a customized 16-ounce Mananalu water bottle.
Due to its new relationship, the airline claimed that it would annually save over 142,000 plastic bottles across all of its operations. With almost 75% of the aluminum produced still being in use today, aluminum has the highest recycling rate of any beverage packaging materials, claims Mananalu.
Hawaiian Airlines’ Chief Marketing and Communications Officer, Avi Mannis, said:
We have remained strong in our mission to find more environmentally friendly items for our onboard service, and our relationship with Mananalu enables us to keep eliminating single-use plastics and safeguarding the ecosystem and oceans.
