Faleolo International Airport Opening hours

We are arriving on a Tuesday night at 9.30pm. We are getting the ferry Wednesday morning so I was wondering can you sleep at the airport. Can't afford to get a room for a few hours.

The airport is open with a concrete floor and plastic seats.

I dont think it woud close because there are a number of flights coming and going over night but I dont think you would actually get any sleep- or find any where to sit comfortably.

There is a cheap place close by called Transit Motel, the prices start at 50 tala (about 30 nzd) which i think would be a good option.

I have slept in a few airports but I wouldnt bother in Faleolo, a tiring, uncomfortable start to a nice holiday.

check out the transit motel and if you want to see photos of the airport check out my facebook page- aba samoa.

Hi kenny8493,

I would suggest that you take a taxi to the ferry terminal. There are several long benches at that terminal where you can lie down and sleep. It will not be too comfortable but it would be better than trying to sleep while sitting upright on one of the seats at the airport. This would be your best option if you do not wish to pay for accommodation for a few hours. Quite understandable. Enjoy your holiday. Where are you staying on Savaii?

I'd definitely fork out the $50 for Transit. The airport is noisy and crowded and as amysmum says there are flights arriving all night so you can't escape the hustle and bustle. There's no air con either and you're arriving in the Wet season so it will be very humid and uncomfortable wherever you might want to sleep other than accommodation.

Have a great trip
