The latest in the national airline's safety video series has a full Kiwiana feel with some of the countries biggest names and most beautiful destinations.
The star-studded cast includes Kiwi sporting legends, musicians and Game of Thrones stars.
Eliza McCartney, Rachel Hunter and Mike Hosking join Shortland St actor Jayden Danielson on a quintessentially Kiwi road trip against a picturesque Northland backdrop.
With help from his celebrity friends, the video follows Jayden from Auckland to Waitangi all the way to Motukokako Island.
In the clip, model Rachel Hunter returns to her iconic VW Beetle, reprising her role "going back 30 years, to an icecream job I did."
Kiwi star, Game of Thrones Dothraki warrior Joe Naufahu also returned home for the shoot.
"With dolphins swimming around the set and awe inspiring sights like Tane Mahuta, Northland is certainly a special place to be," he said.
"The highlight was getting to jump off the boat into the beautiful, warm water," said teenage pole-vaulting sensation and life-jacket instructor in the video, Eliza McCartney.
Spokesman David Wilson from The Bay of Island's Marketing Group who sponsored the Air New Zealand safety video said the video would showcase the region's best attractions to " millions around the world".
