American Samoa seeks federal cabotage waiver

American Samoa's governor, Lolo Matalasi Moliga, says for tourism to develop the federal cabotage law must be waived.

Cabotage rules prevent foreign carriers from operating between two US airports.

Over the years American Samoa has been pushing for a waiver to allow foreigner carriers such as Fiji Airways or Air New Zealand to fly in and out of Pago Pago to Honolulu or Los Angeles.

Lolo told the Legislature that unless the US Congress exempts American Samoa from the federal cabotage law, any large amount of money spend on promoting the territory overseas will not make a great difference.

Note: Hawaiian Airlines holds a monopoly over aviation traffic for American Samoa.
