Whilst there are several times of the year to choose from, October is seen as the time to fly to Samoa, however, it is possible to get good deals throughout the year. If you are looking for warm weather when you arrive off of your flight to Samoa then January is statistically the hottest. January is historically the period with most rainfall.

When is the best time to book a flight to Samoa?

The best time to book flights to Samoa is 50 days before your desired departure date. The cost of your flight will likely increase significantly if you book two weeks in advance of your flight.

Which day is cheapest to fly to Samoa?

Friday is currently, on average, the cheapest day to fly to Samoa. Flying on Sunday will result in higher flight prices.

What time of day is cheapest to fly to Samoa?

Flights at midday are typically the cheapest time of the day to fly to Samoa. Flights in the afternoon are usually the most expensive.

Western Samoa is a volcanic land of lava fields and waterfalls, lush rainforests, towering cliffs, blowholes, soft, sandy beaches and great swells. Then there are the ties between Samoa and Australia and New Zealand that go way back (in 1962 Samoa became independent of New Zealand). Another reason why cheap flights to Samoa are in high demand is the political situation in Fiji, which has cast a shadow over relations with Australia in recent years. Whatever you fly to Samoa for, you can be sure that you’ll receive a warm welcome from the Samoans.

The Independent State of Samoa consists of two islands, Upolu and Savaii, and seven other islands. Upolu has the capital (Apia), the international airport and most of Samoa’s population. Savaii, an one-hour ferry ride away, is larger, more remote and consequently less developed.

If you are lucky enough to get to Cape Mulinuu on Savaii for sunset, you can rest assured that you’ll be one of the last people in the world to see the sun set that day. Legend has it that this is also the place where the dead pass into the underworld.

Golfers and big-game fishermen will also enjoy a visit to Samoa. While beach fales and resorts are being rebuilt or restored on the south coast after last year’s tsunami, the best way to help Samoans is by holidaying in their beautiful country.

How long is the flight to Samoa from Australia?

Flights into Samoa are available from several areas in Australia. Brisbane offers flights into Apia which are nonstop or have one or more stops during the flight. The typical flight length is about 4h 55m in duration and lands in Apia Faleolo Airport. When leaving from Melbourne, some flights last around 8h 50m in length but can be much longer at 18h 25m. Travellers can also leave through Sydney, Adelaide, Gold Coast, Newcastle, and Perth into Apia in Samoa.

Which cities offer direct flights to Samoa?

Direct, nonstop Samoa flight deals are available when leaving from Brisbane, Australia. Some of the airlines offering these flights are Samoa Airways, Fiji Airways, and Air New Zealand. This is the only location that offers direct flights, but many others have stopover flights available. For example, Melbourne offers stopover flights from Air New Zealand, Fiji Airways, and Samoa Airways. Flights from Adelaide into Samoa are provided by Jetstar, Samoa Airways, Qantas, and several others.

What is the best way to travel around Samoa?

There are several options for getting around Samoa. The Samoa Shipping Corporation offers passenger ferries between Salelologa and Mulifanua that take about an hour. There are also many inexpensive taxies available in Apia but they’re not metered so the price needs to be negotiated. Travellers can also ride buses with wooden benches and bright colours. Beyond the main bus terminals, passengers wave their hand to stop the bus at their destination. Bicycles, scooters, and cars can also be rented.

What are some things to do in Samoa?

One of the top places to visit in Samoa is the Aleipata district which is filled with traditional houses, beaches with white sand, and waterfalls. There are also stretches of rainforest to explore where new species are continuously being discovered. The Palolo Deep Marine Reserve is another place to visit where guests can surf, snorkel, and dive. The largest old structure in Polynesia, Tia Seu Ancient Mound, is also available to visit on the eastern end of Savai’i Island. Auala Green Turtle Conservation gives guests the chance to see turtles who are about to be released into the wild. The area also has many hiking routes for everyone from the beginner to the expert. Another place to check out is the Tafua Peninsula Rainforest Preserve which is a habitat for the indigenous and endangered tooth-billed pigeon which is the Samoan national bird.

Do I need a passport or visa to fly to Samoa?

When flying to Samoa from Australia, travellers need a passport that’s valid for at least six months beyond the date of departure. There’s no need for a visa for a stay up to 60 days. Those who wish to stay up to 60 days more can apply at the Apia immigration office. In addition to the passport, travellers need to show proof of a return ticket into Australia.
