There are a number of airports in American Samoa. However, not all American Samoa airports have regularly scheduled flights. We do not list the smallest American Samoa airports, since there is no way to provide you flights from those airports. AirGorilla offers flights, hotels, and rental car reservations for American Samoa.
American Samoa (Samoan: Amerika Samoa or Samoa Amelika) is an unincorporated U.S. territory located in the south Pacific Ocean southeast of the sovereign state of Samoa. The nation consists of five volcanic islands with rugged peaks and limited coastal plains, two coral atolls (Rose and Swains). The main (largest and most populous) island is Tutuila, with the Manu'a Islands, Rose Atoll, and Swains Island also included in the territory. American Samoa is part of the Samoan Islands chain, located west of the Cook Islands, north of Tonga, and some 300 miles (500 km) south of Tokelau. To the west are the islands of the Wallis and Futuna group.
The climate is tropical marine, moderated by southeast trade winds; annual rainfall averages about 3 m; rainy season from November to April, dry season from May to October; little seasonal temperature variation. Land use is 5% arable land, 10% permanent crops, 70% forests and woodland, 15% "other."
Although many respected reference sources list the neighboring village of Pago Pago as the capital, Fagatogo is the de facto and de jure (i.e., constitutionally designated) seat of government. Additionally, the governor's office is located in the village of Utulei, located on the opposite side of Fagatogo from Pago Pago.
This is a traditional Polynesian economy in which more than 90% of the land is communally owned. Economic activity is strongly linked to the US, with which American Samoa conducts the great bulk of its foreign trade. Tuna fishing and tuna processing plants are the backbone of the private sector, with canned tuna being the primary export. Transfers from the US Government add substantially to American Samoa's economic well-being. Attempts by the government to develop a larger and broader economy are restrained by Samoa's remote location, its limited transportation, and its devastating hurricanes. ()
