Letters to the Editor

Re: New Airport at Tiavea Give the Americans a chance to drop off their shopping and show off some Benjamin’s as they travel through or stop in Upolu by giving them easier access. Aleipata is facing American Samoa so it makes sense to have a route directly to and fro.

Re: Tiavea Airport There is no need for this airport. The one at Fagali’i is in town and it’s affordable if you are catching a taxi. The thinking behind this is not logical at all.

Dear Editor, We took a group of visitors from overseas on a sightseeing tour of Upolu on Friday a week ago. Our visitors had been here for a week on business and were to leave that weekend. We started out from Apia and took the road that runs through the Aleisa farmlands, then Lefaga (without diverting to the coast), then Safata, Siumu, Falealili with a stop at Aga Hotel for lunch.
