Real Tonga gets rid of chartered plane
NUKU’ALOFA- April 21: 2:33pm(RNZI): A Tongan airline, Real Tonga, has sent a chartered plane back to Australia because of financial difficulties.
The company said the Jet-Stream aircraft, which is chartered at a monthly cost of about $US35,000 dollars, has not been used in the past three months because of a fall in demand.
The plane had been operating between Tongatapua, Vava’u and Ha’apai.
Radio Tonga reports that more people are understood to sailing between the islands after improvements in services and cheaper fares.
