Pago Pago is the capital city of American Samoa. In the Samoan language it is pronounced "Pahngo-Pahngo".

Get in

By plane

Pago Pago is approximately 16 miles from the Tafuna International Airport (PPG IATA). The small terminal is in the process of expanding and taxis are always available when exiting the building. There does not seem to be a lot of air traffic, except for flights to/from Hawaii and neighboring islands of Manu'a and the independent country of (Western) Samoa. The cost of a taxi ride from Tafuna to Pago Pago is usually $15-$20, and $1.00 on a aiga bus. Most hotels on the island offer pick-up and shuttle service if arranged in advance.
