The Fagali airport is northeast of the Samoan capital Apia in the village Fagali’i-uta, Samoa. It is close to plantation road. The island it is on is called Upolu, which is southeast of the biggest island in the Samoan archipelago. It has been closed and reopened several times due to complaints from locals about safety and noise pollution. In 2002 it was converted from a grass runway to a paved one. However, it was closed down again until July 1, 2009, when Polynesian Airlines reopened it.
The Fagali airport offers international flights to places such as Pago Pago and American Samoa, though it has few amenities. It’s a great airport to use for visiting places such as Mount Matavanu, Piula Cave Pool, and the Museum of Samoa.
Fagali has a small population of 1,571 according to a 2006 census. The Fagali village is also home to the Royal Samoa Golf Course, which can be found east of the airport.
Anything the village may not have, could be easily found in the nearby hub of Apia. There are all types of shops and vendors that offer whatever you may need on your trip.
The citizens of the Samoan islands perform fire dances and other traditional dances, which have received great reviews from recent visitors.
The weather is usually tropical all year round, with rain being possible at any time. There are beautiful resorts and hotels available near Apia if you decide to travel to the islands.
