The Fagali’l Airport is located just two miles from the center of Apia, Samoa. It is currently in operation and owned by the Polynesian airlines, but not before going through quite a bit of difficulty from the Samaon government.
In 2002, the Fagali’l Airport would upgrade its airstrip from grass to pavement. This conversion would turn heads and open eyes, as such change would raise safety and noise concerns from the Samoan government and the village as well.
In 2005, the airport would unfortunately be denied the right to conduct any business in Apia due to safety and noise concerns, but this wouldn’t be the last time the Fagali’l Airport would attempt to re-open its doors.
In 2009, the Fagali’l Airport would re-open its doors and is owned and operated by the Polynesian Airlines. All hazardous concerns were met and with the addition to its previous services, it would now start servicing for flights to and from Pago Pago, American Samoa.
Although there were still some safety concerns administered by the village, the airport would continue its operations as normal as such concerns wouldn’t be that huge of a factor to put an halt to the Fagali’l business. The airport is currently home to Polynesian Airlines, Samoa Air, South Pacific Island Airways and Talofa Airways.
