REALtonga today, proudly announces that Monday 29th July 2019, as the launch date of the much anticipated flight operations between Tonga and Fiji.
Services will operate between Fua’amotu International Airport in Tonga and Nausori International Airport, Suva, Fiji.
REALtonga will be utilising the SAAB 340 for this service, offering up to twenty five (25) passenger seats and a full meal service.
The Owner & Chief Executive of REALtonga, Mr. Tevita Palu, is delighted to announce this exciting development for REALtonga, as this is the first Tongan Airline to operate into Suva ,Fiji. A milestone for Tonga and a dream come true for Mr. Palu since he started the airline in 2013. He also said, that from the moment he thought of starting an airline, he had always visualised more than just offering a domestic service for the people of Tonga and he always expected that REALtonga air services would expand internationally and offer our people more choice, more flexibility and better fares than are currently available.
Mr. Palu said whilst Samoa is the first of our international routes and Fiji second, the airline’s management team are pursuing possibilities to further extend REALtonga routes to offer safe, convenient, comfortable and cheaper options to the people of Tonga to other neighboring countries.
REALtonga will be offering one (1) flight a week on every Mondays with foreseeable expansion in the near future
This operation looks to open up more travel, trade and business opportunities between Tonga and Fiji and further growth opportunities for our tourism market as well as a huge reduction in travelling time for those travelling to and from Suva.
