Talofa Airways launched its inaugural flight to Tonga yesterday from Fagali'i Airport in Samoa.

Airline spokesman Taua Fatu Tielu says travel between Tonga, Samoa and American Samoa is a nightmare.

Taua said their core customers are Tongan and Samoan travellers between those three locations, including members of expatriate communities there who want to visit home for a short vacation.

He said they would explore Niue, Wallis and Futuna and Pukapuka in the northern Cooks as possible future destinations.
