Air New Zealand release its latest quirky air safety video

Air New Zealand has released an amusing air safety video that explores the country's famous sites in search of 'the eighth wonder of the world'. 

The NZ national carrier released its 'Discover The 8th Wonder' video online on Thursday, which is now part of its pre-flight safety demonstration.  

The clip begins with representatives of NZ sites and cities such as Milford Sound, the Franz Josef Glaciers and Wellington debating where the next wonder should be.

'Why don't we visit some of these places? That way you can see them for yourselves,' the Air NZ flight attendants said in the video. 

Flight attendants then gave safety instructions before jetting off to the West Coast Glaciers, where the theme of fresh air linked to the next safety instruction - how to use an oxygen mask. 

Next, the theme of kayaking in Milford Sound linked to life jacket instructions while eating smoked salmon on Stewart Island warned against smoking on flights. 

Looking at the Southern Lights (Aurora Australis) was linked to the plane's aisle lights and lastly, taking photos in Tairāwhiti Gisborne led to instructions about using electronic devices on the flight.

Back at the discussion meeting, representatives were still arguing about which site should be the eighth wonder, when one said: 'New Zealand, it's the whole country!'  

'Aotearoa, the eighth wonder of the world!' The Gisborne representative said, prompting the Stewart Island ambassador to say 'chur bro' in agreement.

All of the representatives then agreed that the whole country is the eighth wonder before debating whether 'yeah, nah' means yes or no. 

Air NZ Chief Customer and Sales Officer Leanne Geraghty said the video, which has almost 100,000 YouTube views, is designed to help the struggling tourism and aviation industries.     

'With borders closed as a result of COVID-19, we've seen a significant impact on the New Zealand tourism industry,' Ms Geraghty said.

'Around 30 percent of people flying on our domestic network are usually visitors from overseas.   

'In the absence of international visitors, the safety video is a unique way to stimulate further local demand, benefiting local tourism operators, the New Zealand economy and Air New Zealand employees.' 

She also said the video is designed to keep NZ in the 'top of mind' for international tourists in anticipation of when borders eventually reopen.  

Air NZ releases a new extravagant safety video every year with themes ranging from Lord of The Rings, a hip hop music video and a Richard Simmons exercise routine.

The most viewed Air NZ safety video titled 'The Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made' has more than 21 million YouTube views and has a Middle Earth theme to coincide with the launch of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
