APIA, Western Samoa (October 2, 1997 - PACNEWS)---Polynesian Airlines and Royal Tongan Airlines will initiate code-sharing arrangements on October 28.

Under the arrangement, Polynesian Airlines will extend its current Apia/Wellington/ Melbourne flight to operate Apia/Tonga/Wellington/Melbourne and vice versa.

Polynesian's chief executive officer, Richard Gates, says the new agreement continues moves by regional carriers to pool their somewhat limited resources to maximize services for the traveling public.

Polynesian provides international B737-300 services from its main hub in Apia to Auckland, Wellington, Sydney, Melbourne, Fiji, Tonga, and American Samoa.

It also serves Honolulu and Los Angeles through code-sharing on Air New Zealand's B767-300 flights.

Royal Tongan Airlines operates from its base in Nuku'alofa to Auckland, Sydney, Nadi and Niue as well as providing domestic services to Ha'apai, Vava'u and other areas. Its B737-300 aircraft is jointly leased with Air Pacific.
