5:27 pm on 22 September 2005

Hawaiian Airlines is in negotiations with Polynesian Blue to launch a joint service between Apia and Honolulu.

Polynesian Blue is the merger between Samoa's state-owned Polynesian Airlines and Australia's low cost carrier Virgin Blue.

Hawaiian's Vice-President of Public Affairs, Keoni Wagner, confirmed that talks are being held but that no commitments have been made.

At present, Polynesian has a weekly flight between Apia and Honolulu.
