Questions have been sent to Talofa Air but the airline had not responded as of news time.

The airline is making arrangements for travelers booked on their flights to and from Samoa.

KHJ News received reports that passengers waited for quite a while to get assistance from the airport and had deplaned by the time help arrived.
