The livery of the new 48-passenger ATR-42 aircraft was created by renowned Hilo-based artist Sig Zane and his son Kuha'o. They incorporated Hawaiian Airlines' interisland route map as a foundation for the design, which weaves three kapa patterns: piko (navel), representing ancestry and progeny; manu (bird), representing both a bird in flight and the prow of a canoe, the traditional form of migration; and kalo (taro), representing family. The ATR-42 aircraft are named after a significant wind on each of the islands that 'Ohana by Hawaiian will serve:Holo Kaomi of Paoma'i, Lana'i; Kaiaulu of Wai'anae, O'ahu; and Hikipua of Halawa, Moloka'i.

The 'Ohana by Hawaiian operation creates more than 100 new Hawai'i-based jobs in various areas of air transportation including pilots, flight attendants and mechanics as well as ground-handling and customer service positions. Hawaiian Airlines handles reservations and sales for the new operation, allowing the interisland flights to integrate seamlessly into Hawaiian Airlines' well-established route network. The service will operate out of gates 49 and 50 at Honolulu International Airport.
