About Inter Island Airways

Inter Island Airways, also known as Inter Island Air, was an airline based in Pago Pago in the America Samoa. It offered passenger and cargo flights between American Samoa, Samoa and other neighbouring Pacific island countries.

The airline was based at Pago Pago International Airport and operated its flights with a fleet of only 2 aircraft.

Inter Island Airways was first established in 1993 and received its air carrier certificate in 1995. It began operations between Pago Pago (Tutuila Island) and Tau (Manu'a Islands).
