Call for Samoa airline re-think

The former chair of Samoa Airways, Muagututi'a Lafaele Ngau Chun, has called on the government to consider re-investing in an aircraft.

The Samoa Government earlier this year canceled a lease of a 737-800 Boeing due to its accumulated debt of tens of millions of dollars.

But Muagututi'a says Samoa is in the position where it needs a plane, so it can bring in its people at its choosing while providing competitive airfares.

He says during his term with Samoa Airways they had developed plans but a lack of funding meant they didn't eventuate.
