Samoa Airways to receive Government assistance

Samoa Airways is set to receive $4 million tālā in assistance from the Government to help with its development and paying off its debt.

The money was included in the $1-point-zero-eight billion tālā Budget tabled in Parliament last week.

The interim CEO of Samoa Airways, Fauoo Fata Tielu, has confirmed the airline managed to pay $15 million tālā owed to non-government agencies as of March 8th this year, but they still have a long way to go with the remaining debt.
