Polynesian Blue relaunched in December 2011 as Virgin Samoa, as part of the larger relaunch of the Virgin Australia airline. Virgin Samoa now operates as Samoa's national airline providing the same high level of service and cheap airfares that Virgin are known for.
Virgin Samoa connects Samoa to New Zealand and Australia, providing direct flights to Apia from Auckland and Sydney, as well as connecting flights from Christchurch, Wellington and Brisbane.
For each flight purchased, a Velocity member on Virgin Samoa and Virgin Australia earns Velocity Points and status credits. These credits and points can be redeemed for any available seat, any flight, any time, on all Virgin Group airlines.
