MV Tongiaki for sale to cut FISA costs
Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa, 17/06/2020
The Friendly Island Shipping Agency is re-advertising the MV Tongiaki for sale to help cut costs for the shipping agency.
The FISA Acting CEO – Seventeen Toumo’ua says FISA currently owns three vessels but are able to meet demands from customers with just 2 vessels and since the MV Tongiaki is the most expensive vessel to operate, they have decided to trade off the catamaran to save costs for the agency.
Toumo’ua says this will also result in the agency being able to maintain a relatively affordable fare for the public in using their services. The MV Tongiaki was acquired by FISA in 2018 and was commissioned by His Majesty King Tupou VI at the Queen Salote Wharf.
