A Samoan airline has sent its first flight to Tonga this morning and it was expected to arrived at the Fua’amotu International airport at 9.20am.

Talofa Airways’ CEO Toleafoa Jeffrey Hunter, reportedly said their first flight will return the same day through Pago Pago.

“The airline will have four flights a week to Tonga, two originate from Fagalii and two flights begin from Pago”, Talanei online reported.

It said for the Tonga service,” the aircraft is a comfortable and fast way to travel between the two island nations with only 1 hour 50 minutes flight time”.

Radio New Zealand report said the airline’s “core customers are Tongan and Samoan travellers between those three locations, including members of expatriate communities there who want to visit home for a short vacation”.

The airline would explore Niue, Wallis and Futuna and Pukapuka in the northern Cooks as possible future destinations.
