Air New Zealand has launched a new safety video - Air All Blacks - in support of the team during its 2019 season and as they prepare for the World Cup in Japan next month.
All Blacks head coach, Steve Hansen, along with captain Kieran Read, Sam Cane, Anton Lienert-Brown and Ryan Crotty join a diverse cast in the safety video which takes viewers to the headquarters of “newly established airline” Air All Blacks where ideas for the airline’s first safety video are being discussed.
After insisting on being the next Air New Zealand spokesperson after travelling with the airline in 2017, American actor Rick Hoffman also features in the video, as well as leading Kiwi actor Cliff Curtis.
Hoffman says his positive experiences in New Zealand and Air New Zealand’s quirky humour were a huge drawcard for him to star in the video.
Building on the airline’s twenty-year partnership with New Zealand Rugby, the video also stars 1987 rugby legends Michael Jones, John Kirwan, Buck Shelford, Gary Whetton and David Kirk and former Black Ferns Captain Fiao’o Fa’amausili as well as former Australia captain George Gregan.
Adding to the iconic Kiwi line-up, Air All Blacks is backed by the exclusive, original soundtrack Universe, a brand-new track from New Zealand band SIX60.
