Tiaki and the Guardians
As Aotearoa prepared to reopen its boarders to the world after a nationwide rāhui from our overseas manuhiri for over two years, Araraurangi (Air New Zealand) and Te Kāhui Tautiaki took a moment to breathe, to regather and to wānanga in depth on how best to welcome the world back to our shores under a cloak of tiakitanga and through a world view unique to this place. Shifting the mindset to proactively attract conscious travellers that align with our values, a decision was made to send a wero to the world, that Aotearoa has lifted its rāhui, and is ready to invite all those who share in our cherished spirit of manaakitanga. Since its release in May, the video has been viewed more than 27 million times around the world. Eclipsing all expectations and shining a light back on Aotearoa after difficult times for our nation’s tourism community.
