Poly Airlines C.E.O. resigns
The Chief Executive Officer of Polynesian Airlines, Taua Fatu Tielu has resigned.
He confirmed his resignation when the Samoa Observer contacted him for a comment last night.
“It is true,” he said, “but can you call back in ten minutes, I’m in a meeting.”
Several calls to his office after that were unsuccessful. The calls were instead forwarded to the voicemail.
It could not be confirmed whether Taua’s resignation has anything to do with the Airline’s public spat with Samoa Air as well as the Samoa Airports Authority (SAA) over the running of Fagali’i Airport among other aviation matters. But Taua’s resignation comes a few months after the Airline announced a profit of $1.5million. As part of that, the company paid the Government a dividend of $55,451.
According to a statement from the airline at the time, for six years Polynesian has made a profit every year with a total profit for the six years totaling in excess of $18 million.
