Polynesian has been servicing the domestic route between the Manu'a islands and Tutuila.

There is no United States carrier serviving the routes.

The Government has been extending 30-day cabotage waivers and has now extended it to November the 27th.

The United States Department of Transport assistant secretary for aviation and international affairs Susan Kurland says the cabotage waiver is necessary to prevent unreasonable hardship to residents of American Samoa.
