Back in 1990, the Fagali Airport was owned by the local government and used for military training and flight purposes. The airport was closed shortly after because of noise and pollution violations. After being closed, the airport remained abandoned for many years before Polynesian Airlines purchased it in 1996. It was reopened as the Fagali Airport and is now Somoa’s largest and busiest airport. The airport is found on the Somoa Island, which is one of the only features on the island besides a few housing communities and stores. The airport has multiple airlines within the facility, offering both local and international travel to those who are flying.
Some of the airlines within the Fagali Airport include South Pacific Airways, Pogo Pogo Air and Somoa Air. The international flights will go to America, Canada, Africa and some parts of Europe. The airport employs over 200 workers to keep the airport running safely and efficiently. In fact, the airport has been reported to be one of the safest flight facilities in the world and has even received awards claiming this from the International Flight Association. The airport takes security and safety seriously, and all patrons must go through a rigorous security system in order to board their flights.
The Fagali Airport has multiple in-house amenities to make flying easier and more convenient. The full-service restaurant is open 24 hours a day and has breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert options available at affordable prices. The airport also has a cafe and gift shop to make it quicker to grab something or a bite to eat. There are over 30,000 flights leaving the Fagali Airport each year with over a million people passing through the facility annually. Due to its size, it is one of the busiest airports in the world at the current moment.
