Virgin Australia confirms plans to fly to Samoa from November
Starting on November 13, the new flights will ensure there is no disruption in services between Australia and Samoa.
Subject to relevant regulatory approvals, Virgin Australia will operate five return services per week from Auckland to Apia, up to two return services per week from Sydney to Apia, and up to two services per week from Brisbane to Apia.
Virgin Australia general manager network and revenue management Russell Shaw welcomed the new services.
“Samoa is an important tourist destination and since the Virgin brand commenced flying there in 2005 we have carried more than 1.4 million guests between Australia, New Zealand and Samoa,” he said.
“We want to continue to support Samoa and provide valuable tourism opportunities to the Samoan economy. We look forward to receiving approval from the Samoan Government to commence these operations.”
