Samoa’s Talofa Airways eyes Tonga as potential destination

    A new locally-owned Samoa airline, Talofa Airways has been assessing the kingdom as potential destination.

    The Airline Advisor, Toleafoa Jeffrey Hunter told the Samoa Observer yesterday the Tongan authority has “endorsed it and they want the service”.

    Tonga Civil Aviation could not be immediately reached for comments.

    However, Hunter said they were in Tonga during the Independence holidays to negotiate with the Tongan Department of Transport.

    “We are waiting for the permit and for them to go through their system before we set the starting date to fly.”
