In September, the airline signed an exclusive agreement with the recently launched premium lounge.
CEO for Samoa Airways, Seiuli Alvin Tuala says this new service will enhance their customers’ travelling experience and raise the quality of their product service out of Samoa.
“We continue to look at improving our service to our customers, and this is one way to meet that. We want to ensure our customers get a proper Samoa Airways experience whenever they choose to fly us”
The Faleolo Airport Lounge offers a warm and comfortable environment for travellers travelling on business class to enjoy some extra comforts. Passengers will appreciate access to private restrooms and shower facilities so they can freshen up before boarding directly at their departure gate
The locally owned and operated premium lounge also features a unique “Samoan Snack Corner” where passengers can get their last fix of favourite bites to eat before departure.
Among the delectable Samoan-origin snacks are an array taro, banana and ulu chips available as well as keke saiga (chinese cakes).
For extra comfort and leisure, the Faleolo Airport Lounge is equipped with Sky Cable and Moana T.V so that business class travellers can kick back and relax back into the oversized modern sofas provided and catch up on the news or stay connected with complimentary and unlimited Wi-Fi.
There’s something for everyone in the Lounge and if customers prefer to stay switched off, they can make themselves at home in the quiet reading corner furnished with a collection of books and magazines.
Passengers need not worry about missing their flight as the Lounge is equipped with digital T.V screens and speakers to keep you updated on departure times and any airport announcements.
Faleolo Airport Lounge is locally owned and operated by the creators of LokoStyles Fashion, who saw an opportunity to compliment the new and improved Faleolo International Airport by offering a VIP lounge service.
Co-owner of Lokostyles, Clayton Simamao said they were keen to enter into a partnership with Samoa Airways, wanting to give their nation’s carrier first priority over other airlines,
“We wanted to stay in line with the island corporate theme which means offering our unique Samoan tradition of hospitality at a premium level” Said Mr Simamao
The first-class services provided are inclusive of any business class seat purchase with Samoa Airways.
Mr Simamao added that all other Samoa Airways passengers can also access the Lounge for an extra one-off fee.
