Hawaiian Airlines is the Official Airline Sponsor of the 25th Annual Made in Hawaii Festival (MIHF), sharing our love for local products with kama‘āina statewide.

The upcoming three-day marketplace will feature hundreds of Hawai‘i businesses from throughout the Islands, including our interactive, entrepreneur-focused booth done in collaboration with our partner, Mana Up, a local initiative helping companies scale their products.

What to Expect at MIHF

Festival attendees who stop by the Hawaiian Airlines x Mana Up booth will learn more about the stories behind six featured brands: Hanalei, Kunoa Cattle Company, Macapan, Manele Spice Company, Kaimana Jerky, and Voyaging Foods. Visitors can also purchase products, speak to select business owners and play to win exclusive prizes.

Our Partnership With Mana Up

Hawaiian Airlines first launched its partnership with Mana Up in 2018 as part of a long-term commitment to support island-based retail and food companies. Through this collaboration, local businesses can leverage our robust flight route network to reach a global audience while also complementing our award-winning service.



“Our goal in working together is to support innovative minds from our island home and share their local products with our guests on a global scale,” said Robert Sorensen, vice president of marketing at Hawaiian Airlines.

Today, our guests can enjoy in-flight products sourced from three businesses that have participated in Mana Up’s product accelerator program. These companies include:
