Today Polynesian Blue launches flights between Auckland and Samoa.

The airline will offer direct flights from both Auckland and Sydney to Samoa, giving leisure travellers yet another South Pacific destination option as well as providing New Zealand and Australian based Samoans with an easy and direct flight back home to visit family and friends.

Virgin Blue Chief Executive, Brett Godfrey said, This is the third airline we have launched in the past five years and we are confident Polynesian Blue will be successful in luring more travellers to experience unspoilt Samoa. 

"We are delighted to have the opportunity to join the Government of Samoa in Polynesian Blue and we look forward to contributing to Samoa's tourism effort."

Polynesian Blue flights will be operated by Pacific Blue Airlines, ensuring the services are run efficiently and economically, in line with the low cost carrier strategy and cost base.

The Hon Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi, Prime Minister of Samoa said, We look forward to welcoming more Australian and New Zealand visitors to Samoa and embracing our aiga when they return home.

He continued, The Government of Samoa relishes the economic opportunities which tourism brings to the region, however it also is respectful of its cultural and physical environment and believes the two can live in harmony. This partnership promises access to one of the Pacifics last secrets for an affordable price. I am pleased we asked for IFCs advice in this venture their assistance has been invaluable.
