Air Transport Study

Air Transport Marketing Study for American Samoa

American Samoa’s economic development continues to be hampered by the high cost of air transportation into and out of the Territory.  To determine the most effective ways to overcome this barrier to economic growth, the American Samoa Department of Commerce began the Air Study project in 2012 through the support of the U.S. Department of Interior Office of Insular Affairs.  The result of this project is the Air Study Phase I and Air Study Phase II reports (see below), written by Airport Strategy and Marketing Ltd. in August 2014.

Air Study Phase I is aimed as assessing the present conditions in American Samoa and the region as it relates to air transportation.  Air Study Phase II takes a closer look at developing specific plans and recommended action to bring about improvements in air service to American Samoa.

Presently, the Department of Commerce is entering into Phase III of the project, which is aimed at implementing recommendations from Air Study Phase II as well as determining the feasibility of a public-private partnership that could result in a new airline serving the Territory.
