Air New Zealand Team Up with Sports Illustrated for ‘Safety in Paradise’

To celebrate 40 years of flying to the Cook Islands, Air New Zealand has collaborated with Sports Illustrated (celebrating the 50th anniversary of their Swimsuit Issue) for a new safety video featuring swimsuit models such as Chrissy Teigen, Ariel Meredith, Hannah Davis and Jessica Gomes.

“Safety in Paradise” launches next week, but Air New Zealand has shared this behind-the-scenes video of the Cook Islands shoot in the meantime. Christie Brinkley, who was propelled to fame in large part thanks to appearing on three consecutive Sports Illustrated Swimsuit covers, also makes an appearance in “Safety in Paradise,” from her Hollywood home.

“Sports Illustrated Swimsuit has a massive worldwide television, online and print campaign to celebrate the 50th anniversary and we’re incredibly excited to feature in that activity.  The magazine alone has more than 61 million readers annually and the safety video shoot with Air New Zealand will feature in the special anniversary edition,” said Air New Zealand Head of Global Brand Development Jodi Williams.

Entertaining safety videos are nothing new for Air Zealand, who have been doing it for years, featuring folks like Richard Simmons, Bear Grylls, and Betty White, not to mention the Hobbit-themed one they released to coincide with Peter Jackson’s film. If Delta’s recent 80s-themed safety video is any indication, entertaining safety videos are now practically a requirement for airlines. The “Safety in Paradise” video will begin showing on Air New Zealand flights on February 11th, when some fear an epidemic of uncomfortable in-flight arousal.
