The national airline Samoa Airways has announced that it is offering travelers cheap travel packages to mark its one-year anniversary milestone. 

To celebrate its first birthday in November, it will launch its Brisbane flights with special fares ranging from as low as $641 Tala for a one-way ticket.

Those interested in the Apia-Sydney route will not miss out as the airline also has specials, with fares starting from $647 Tala one-way. Flying Apia-Auckland is going for a low $499 Tala one-way.

With Christmas just around the corner, the airline has also got a treat with its Christmas Meaalofa Fares, which are a real bargain at $637 Tala return between Apia-Auckland. Apia-Brisbane return fares will start from $1,322 Tala.

Samoa Airways CEO, Tupuivao Seiuli Alvin Tuala, said the travel packages will cater for both inbound tourists as well as Samoans travelling out of the country.  

“As the National Carrier, we’re delighted to be in a position to celebrate our anniversary and our upcoming flights to Brisbane with our customers through the range of value deals that are now in the market. A key part of our business is to open Samoa up to overseas visitors but also to facilitate travel by our people whether it’s for family, cultural, religious or business reasons,” he said in a statement. 

These deals come at the back of the recent announcement that Brisbane has now been added to the Samoa Airways network.

The twice weekly service will start on November 13. “Brisbane represents a fantastic opportunity for Samoa Airways and with the support of the Government and Brisbane Airport Corporation, improved direct air access between Samoa and the capital of Queensland will soon become a reality,” added Tupuivao.

Samoa Airways launched its inaugural flight on November 14 last year with the CEO indicating that they were delighted to celebrate the milestone with the special fares for its customers. Samoa Airways operates daily flights between Apia and Auckland and twice weekly Apia-Sydney flights.

All fares include one 7kg carry-on, one 23kg checked baggage, hot-meal, beverage selection (tea, coffee, water, orange juice) and in-flight entertainment accessible through customers’ own personal device.
