Air New Zealand has cast an all-star lineup of homegrown talent in its latest safety video, which highlights the tourism jewels in the Northland region of New Zealand.

Inspired by the classic Kiwi road trip, Summer of Safety follows the adventures of New Zealand soap opera star Jayden Daniels as he travels around Northland’s Bay of Islands and Hokianga encountering a host of friendly locals, famous faces and iconic attractions along the way.

Joining Jayden’s getaway is supermodel Rachel Hunter and actor Joe Naufahu – straight from a fiery stint on Game of Thrones. Stuntwoman Zoe Bell and canine sidekick Blossom the British Bulldog, IndyCar legend Scott Dixon and Olympic bronze-medalist Eliza McCartney also jump on board the light-hearted road trip, which was filmed at ten locations across Northland.

Los Angeles based supermodel Rachel Hunter jumped at the chance to go home and star alongside around a hundred locals who worked as extras on the production.

Ms Hunter said - “Filming in the sunny Bay of Islands brought back memories of my childhood – long summer days, family picnics at the beach and of course, the delicious hokey pokey ice cream. Air New Zealand’s safety videos are well known internationally and always have a great storyline. One of my favourite moments in this edition is the closing scene where LadyHawke and her band throw a sunset gig for locals at the Opononi Hotel."
