Seating capacities to Samoa will rise by 13% in the off-season and by 10% in the course of the year. Cam Wallace, Air New Zealand Chief Revenue Officer, says the move to additional commercial wide-body aircraft will provide an important impetus to Samoa's tourist and exports industry. "Today's messages give recreational travelers more choices about when and how to travel to Samoa and offer more safety to those exporting time-critical goods."
By April 2017, the number of New Zealand attendees had risen by 3.8% to 57,000. Auckland and Apia will fly Boeing 787-9, Boeing 777-200 and Airbus A-220.

Auckland Museum and Mangere Arts Centre - Ng? Tohu o Uenuku will celebrate Samoa's Golden Jubilee with a program of open demonstration and work-shops. After a trust in 1962, West Samoa became New Zealand independant from 1919.
It was at this point that they concluded a treaty of friendship, which supports today's formal relations. The Samoan Independence Day is commemorated every year on June 1 in Samoa and in the New Zealand Fellowship by more than 130,000 in all. Samoan cultural workers specialize in cultural inheritance and take part in a weekly activity in Auckland and Wellington.
Auckland' s Mayor Len Brown will welcome the performers to the Mangere Arts Centre on Saturday 9 June 2012. The Auckland Museum, Mangere Arts Centre and Te Papa will each be running their own open-program. Samoa members will also be visiting the Victoria University Library's 50-year history in Wellington.
"It recognizes the story of relations between Samoa and New Zealand, promotes the art of New Zealand's Pacific cultural legacy and unites Pasifika and M?ori artist who have so much in common. Therefore, this event is a great opportunity for us to get to know each other. It' a great opportunity for all of us to party together," says Creative New Zealand Chief Executive Stephen Wainwright.
Among the performers are tattoo artist Paul Junior Sulu'ape, descendant of Sulu'ape Petelo, the tattoo artist of the iconic Sulu'ape tattoo artist group, assisted by Heperona Seiuli, who will be headed by Galumalemana Steven Percival, a material and videoproducer, who will act as interpreters and mediators for the performers, many of whom have not come from Samoa.
Galumalemana, an independant film maker, has made a series of movies that capture Samoa's rich culture and is the creator of the Tiapapapata Art Centre, founded to support Samoan art and handicrafts, both ancient and modern. New Zealand artists' times highlight are a Samoa Avas ceremonial at the Auckland Museum, a visit to a website at p?whiri at the Mangere Art Centre and the artists' commitment to the Matariki Festival in Te Papa.
Hopefully, New Zealand's culture exchanges will give New Zealand's community the opportunity to meet experienced artists in the Pacific and to build, strengthen and promote good interrelations.
