Polynesia Line goes direct to Tonga

February 29 - Polynesia Line is adding a direct monthly call into Nuku'alofa, Kingdom of Tonga to its service from the US West Coast ports of Long Beach and Oakland.

Torben Henry, president of Polynesia Line said, "The introduction of a direct call to Nuku'alofa specifically caters to the needs of the business community in Tonga and makes us the first carrier to connect Tonga to the US West Coast since the 1980s."

Polynesia Line also links the US West Coast with Tahiti, Samoa and American Samoa.

Polynesia Line is owned by The China Navigation Company Pte Ltd, the deep sea shipping arm of the Swire group. Earlier this year it also enhanced the North Asia to Pacific service operated under its liner shipping division, Swire Shipping, with direct calls at Nuku'alofa.
