Increase in travelers sees increase in flights

Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa, 24/12/2018

With the Christmas season upon us, several Tongans and tourists from abroad have been arriving in Tonga to celebrate the holidays. Due to the increase in travelers airlines have had to increase the number of flights to the country to accomodate the travelers.

At this holiday season, there are many Tongans returning to celebrate with their families, and so there has been an increase in flights to Tonga.

Air New Zealand earlier this month made 5 additional flights to their usual schedule from Auckland, which also introduced a new aircraft that can accomodate more passengers.

However not only are there many travelers from abroad arriving in Tonga, there are also many Tongans going abroad for the holidays but the exact number of travelers will be confirmed by the Tonga Airport Limted at the end of the month.

In the flight schedules from TAL, flights for this week are returned to the normal schedule.
