About Hana Hou! Magazine

Editorial Mission

Hana Hou!—Hawaiian for "encore!”—is the local term of approval for an outstanding performance. As the magazine of Hawai‘i's premier air carrier, we try to live up to our name by offering readers a savvy insider's view of life in these Islands by covering the people, places and cultures that make Hawai‘i so extraordinary. Our readership is composed of two groups: About 70 percent are visitors, many of whom are knowledgeable, sophisticated travelers seeking a genuine experience of Hawai‘i that goes beyond the tourist clichés, while about 30 percent are Island residents who expect authenticity, originality and insight from stories about their Island home. We strive to create a refined reading experience with a contemporary edge and an akamai, or clued-in, regional perspective that's entertaining and informative for both visitors and residents.
