The Fagali airport officially opened for business on 2002. Prior to that point, the site had been only a single, grassy landing strip.
When it first opened it was owned by both Polynesian Airlines and the Samoan government. In 2005, the government made the decision to close it down in response to many of the Fagali’I villagers complaining about the noise. In the following years, Polynesian Airlines obtained sole ownership then opened it back up in 2009. It opened up with even better services than before and has kept adding additional international flights ever since. Today, as mentioned the airport plays host to some of the most popular international airlines in the world.
