Heiheionakeiki is a Polynesian constellation which mariners used to navigate to Tahiti. [1] [2] It is the Hawaiian word for the Belt and Sword of Orion. As all of Hawaiian Airlines’s new A330s are named for a constellation or star used by the ancient Polynesians for celestial navigation when making their voyages across the Pacific to Hawaii, the airlines has named its seventh Airbus 330 aircraft after the constellation.[3]
