Get in

By plane

Pago Pago is approximately 16 miles from the Tafuna International Airport (IATA: PPG). The small terminal is in the process of expanding and taxis are always available when exiting the building. There does not seem to be a lot of air traffic, except for flights to/from Hawaii and neighboring islands of Manu'a and the independent country of (Western) Samoa. The cost of a taxi ride from Tafuna to Pago Pago is usually $15-$20, and $1.00 on a aiga bus. Most hotels on the island offer pick-up and shuttle service if arranged in advance.
