Tonga’s domestic flights cancelled due to cyclone warning

As a result of Ula’s cyclonic activity in parts of the kingdom,  Real Tonga Airline’s domestic flights have been cancelled until further notice, the director of the company Tevita Palu has told Kaniva News this afternoon.

He said they will assess the situation today and during the weekend to see if they could have the flights back to services on Monday January 4.

This morning according to Fu’amotua Cyclone Warning Centre,  Cyclone Ula passed close to several islands in Vava’u, bringing 150 kilometre an hour destructive winds.

If Ula continues to remain on its current track as it moved away from Vava’u it will not affect Ha’apai, Tongatapu and ‘Eua.

A hurricane warning has been cancelled for Vava’u and Ha’apai.

Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
