Samoa's government owned Polynesian Airlines is getting close to buying a Twin Otter from a Canadian company.
The airline is negotiating with PPS Aircraft of Canada for the aircraft.
Chief Executive Officer, Taua Fatu Tielu told the Samoa Observer no agreement has been signed yet but if Polynesian decides to buy the aircraft it will be by April 11.
At present the airline has one Twin Otter and a Britten Norman Islander.
The newspaper says its highly likely the company will sell its Islander, which is currently serving as a stand-by aircraft.
