Real Tonga Airlines has signed a codeshare agreement with Samoa Airways so that the two airlines can share the new route service between Tongatapu to Apia Faleolo Airport via Vava’u using a 30 seater aircraft SAAB340.

The twice weekly service is to operate Mondays and Fridays starting May 4, 2018.  This new route will save travellers time and money as the alternative flight options are via Fiji or Auckland, involving an overnight stay and taking 30 hours to complete.

The new service will take 3 hours and 15 minutes to Samoa, costing about US$400, and the flight’s schedule will improve connections with Pago Pago and Honolulu.  Full schedule information and airfares is available on www.realtonga.to

Samoa has direct flights from Auckland, Brisbane, Honolulu, Nadi, Pago Pago and Sydney and now Tonga making it easier to visit.

The islands of Samoa, the Treasured Islands of the South Pacific, are the true heart of Polynesia. Ten islands of stunning wild beauty, Samoa - or Independent Samoa as it is now known so as to avoid confusion with American Samoa - is a paradise waiting to be explored. From powder soft beaches, to warm tropical seas, colourful coral reefs alive with marine life. The rugged, lush interiors reveal endless wildlife, waterfalls and hiking trails.
