Island Air, a regional Hawaii carrier, has given flight to its new logo: the native iiwi bird, a favorite among island kings and queens. A species of the Hawaiian honeycreeper, the iiwi was valued by the ancient Hawaiians for its vermilion feathers, which were used to make capes, crowns and other symbols of royalty.
“The new logo is part of our company’s restructuring to align ourselves with an improved and enhanced level of service,” said Island Air chief Paul Casey. “It symbolizes a revitalized company with deep roots in Hawaii.”
