From , 3:03 pm on 24 May 2017

Virgin Australia is now reviewing its options after Samoa's decision to end their decade long joint venture later this year.

Virgin Australia says the joint venture, called Virgin Samoa, will not continue after November 12,  and it will provide an update on its plans in due course.

The airline also says any affected travellers will be contacted in due course to discuss their travel options.

Our correspondent in Apia Autagavaia Tipi Autagavaia told Sara Vui-Talitu that Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi has given the airline time before reinstating the national carrier, Polynesian Airlines.
