International Airport Faleolo
The Faleolo International Airport (APW) is located 35 km westwards of Apiia. Schuster's shuttle service will take you directly to your Appia or you can use the motorway to get a cheap but very short shuttle service after 1600 and on Sunday. The airport shuttle leaves two hour before the flight from Apiia.
He will pick up the guests in front of the Hotel Insel Fehmarn, then at Aggie Grey's Hotel. Airport cabbies often try to overburden overseas visitors, so take the coach if you can. Taxis from the airport to Apia cost about S$45 (45 Tala) for the vehicle, but they will often want to get US$45 in US dollars, so be cautious.
It is much more secure to take a cab to the airport as they know that you are already acquainted with the Samoan currencies and will probably not try this one. From Apia to the airport a cab should be S$35, but you should be expecting S$45 early in the day or if you have reserved through a local airport.
Aggie Grey's Hotel Samoa Scenic Tours makes airport shuttle services. Arrival desks are open for Pago Pago's own bank accounts, and travellers' cheques are exchanged at similar fares. Western Union at the airport charge less than the bank for traveller's cheques and do not take commissions on currency.
Beneath the check-in area, the airports are open for all foreign travel except Pago Pago services. Airport mail (weekdays 0900-1530) is selling postage stamps, a good way to discharge surplus talas. Generally, in Samoa, alcohol in any case, and beers are relatively inexpensive. There is S$40 Surcharge ( "free for under 12s").
