Samoa Airways plans a second plane

Samoa’s international airline, Samoa Airways is considering acquiring a second aircraft to boost services to the country.

The airline currently has one aircraft and Prime Minister, Tuilaepa Dr. Sailele Malielegaoi is confident the dream of a second plane will come true.

“We have already discussed and know that the Brisbane route will soon open and also there are other routes in Melbourne, Wellington to Tonga which the committee is working on.”

“We have also discussed that an airplane is available for Samoa leading us to a dream come true because truth be told, we should have two airplanes flying in our country assisting one another in terms of accidents,” Tuilaepa said.

He adds that it’s important to appropriately prepare the information for the Cabinet to decide on, so that an airplane will be available by the time the list is finished by March next year.

That’s why it’s important two have two airplanes flying for our country and our tourists.

The Prime Minister also addressed the difference with the Polynesian Airplane.

He said he believes that the number of travellers travelling into the country has increased and there is a new level of travellers coming in.

“I know for sure that the airplane would already be boarded long before it flies off,” Tuilaepa said.
