Polynesian Airlines, which no longer operates flights between Apia and Honolulu, is seeking to extend landing rights in Honolulu for another two years.

Filed with the US Department Transportation , the Samoa government owned airline wants to extend landing rights for flights between Faleolo and Maota airports in Samoa and Pago Pago; flights between Samoa and Tonga via Pago Pago; and rights to operate flights between Apia and Los Angeles and between Honolulu and Auckland, via Apia.

Polynesian is also requesting the renewal of its exemption to operate charter flights in accordance with US regulations.
