Some History On The Fagali’I Airport

Home / Some History On The Fagali’I Airport

The Fagali’I airport currently stands in a great position with its customers and the Fagali’I village. There was a time when the airport didn’t sit well with either of the two, but the airport turned matters around asap.

In the later part of the 20th century, during a time when pretty much all airports included a pavement landing strip for its planes to land on, the Fagali’I airport was a step too slow. The owners [the Polynesian Airlines and the Samoan Government] decided to make the necessary upgrades. It would close its doors and re-open in July of 2002.

A problem would present itself with the new pavement. The landing strip would cause noise levels to increase and this would serve a huge problem with the Fagali’I community according to expedia.com. This noise level would become a hazard, which would cause the airport to de-commission in January of 2005.

In July 1, 2009, Fagali’I Airport would re-open. But, not just re-open with a decrease in noise levels, but would open with an additional flight added to their flight destination list: Pago Pago, American Samoa. With this addition, more vacationers were able to enter into Apia and surrounding areas.

Another issue would arise. The airport would lack transportation accommodations. Guests had complications with getting to their hotels conveniently. Because of this lack, guests would take their business elsewhere. The Fagali’I airport couldn’t continue to lose business to the Faleolo International Airport, so they had to do something fast. They would change their business plans to make transportation accommodations a reality much faster, yet highly effective. In due time, the accommodations were available and guests would return to spend money at the Fagali’I airport, once again.
