MANILA, PHILIPPINES — Popular comedian and television host Melai Cantiveros recently took flight in a new promotional video for Netflix’s hit series Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Melai Cantiveros transformed into a flight attendant for Appa Air, the fictional airline inspired by the iconic sky bison.

The video, released on February 21st, features Cantiveros embodying the cheerful and helpful nature of an Appa Air flight attendant. 

Dressed in a custom flight attendant uniform, she welcomes passengers aboard the “ATLA 222” flight, a clear nod to Appa’s numerical designation in the series.

Throughout the video, Cantiveros acts as a flight attendant of Appa Air where she undergoes an in-flight safety demonstration for the viewers while also referencing to Avatar’s five elements.

The video concludes by saying greetings in several languages, such as “k, thanks, bye” and “mwah mwah, tsup tsup.”

This promotional effort comes as anticipation builds for the live-action adaptation of “Avatar: The Last Airbender,” currently in production at Netflix. 

The series has garnered a dedicated fanbase in the Philippines, where the original animated series remains a beloved classic.

Melai’s involvement in the campaign has been met with positive reactions from Filipino fans. 

Her comedic timing and bubbly personality resonate with audiences, making her a natural choice to represent the lighthearted and adventurous spirit of Avatar.

Netflix’s live-action adaptation of Avatar: The Last Airbender is set to premiere on February 22.
