Samoa Airways, Samoa’s new international airline, has outlined its Northern Winter Schedule as it prepares to launch jet services on 14 November from its hub at Faleolo International Airport.

The schedule consists of six flights between Apia and Auckland, and two services between Apia and Sydney per week, and will be valid up to 24 March 2018, reports Samoa Observer.

Samoa Airways will fly from Auckland to Apia on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday — and fly from Apia to Auckland on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, Friday and Sunday.

It will also include two routes between Sydney and Apia which will fly on Thursday and Saturday.

Convenience, which is an important factor for the airline and its offering, is a key feature of the schedule.

Guests travelling via Auckland, to and from other parts of New Zealand, will have the benefit of same-day connections (to and from Apia), while passengers travelling from around Australia via Sydney can connect right-through to Apia on the same day.
