Air New Zealand has stepped up its safety videos another notch - this time with a video featuring a host of Kiwi stars in beautiful Northland locations, from supermodel Rachel Hunter to Olympic bronze medallist Eliza McCartney.

Inspired by the classic Kiwi road trip, the airline's latest video, Summer of Safety, follows Shortland Street actor Jayden Daniels as he travels around the Bay of Islands and Hokianga meeting locals and famous faces along the way.

Hunter, who is based in Los Angeles, said she loved coming back to New Zealand for the video.

"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.

"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."
