Airlines Tonga

Airlines TongaIn a December post I reported here that Air Fiji was to be allowed to provide domestic air service in Tonga, to make up for the inadequacies of Peau Vavau Airlines owned by Crown Prince Tupoutoa. Last week Airlines Tonga, a joint venture between Air Fiji and Teta Tours Ltd., began operating twice daily flights from Tongatapu to Eua. Their other services are from Tongatapu to Haapai, Vavua, Niuatoputapu, and Niuafo'ou.

This is good news for travelers, and even better news for the residents of Eua, Niuatoputapu, and Niuafo'ou who had been without regular air service for almost two years. Visitors with limited time can now "do" Eua from Nukualofa as a daytrip, departing Fua'amotu Airport at 0745 and arriving back from Eua at 1715.
