The Fagali Airport reopened back in 2009. At this time there were concerns for safety and the environment being harmed and putting a serious burden on the nearby community. In spite of those issues, Fagali Airport continued with its flights from two airlines, Polynesian Airlines and Samoa Air. However, it has since added a craft once Polynesian Airlines bought DHC-6 Twin Otter to handle the Samoa’s flights. Samoa Airways services all routes for American Samoan that happens on a weekly basis. The other destination includes Pago Pago. The Fagali Airport is not to far from the Apia, which is the capital of the city of Samoa.
The city sits on the coast of Upolu, which is Samoa’s second largest island to date. It’s noted that Apia is in the political district of Samoa. When travelers head to Apia from the Fagali Airport, they will encounter a very small village that has a population no more than 36,000 or so people. They will have a change to explore the rich history of the city and take part in tasting the authentic Samoan food. Various taxis are available from the Fagali Airport to bring travelers to the Apia city literally a few miles way.
