4:28 pm on 15 October 2010

Samoa's Polynesian Airlines says it is interested in working with any company planning to offer an air service to Tokelau.

Its chief executive officer, Taua Tielu, says two foreign companies have expressed an interest in Polynesian's equipment and facilities for such a service.

Tokelau's Minister of Transport, Foua Toloa, says the proposal for an air service to Tokelau is being pushed by New Zealand.

Officials from the governments of Tokelau and New Zealand are to meet end of the month to discuss the air service proposal further.
