Talofa Airways yesterday announced the start of its direct flights to Tonga starting on 1 July 2017.
Four schedule flights per week - two from Samoa on Tuesday and Saturday and two from American Samoa on Monday and Friday (Sunday and Thursday Pago days) - are now available for sale for return or one-way fares.
Flights from Tonga to Samoa will be on Monday and Friday and to American Samoa these will be on Tuesday and Saturday (Monday and Friday Pago days).
Chief Executive Officer Tole’afoa Jeffrey Hunter said this beginning of a service they hope to develop in the coming years.
“Finally, and in less than one year since commencement of its airline operation, Talofa Airways is now ready to provide the much needed direct air services between Tonga and the two Samoas,” he said.
“It is my hope to expand this service to Niue, Wallis & Futuna and other neighbouring island.”
The flights to Tonga will not affect Talofa Airways’ daily flights between Samoa and American Samoa.
