REAL Tonga is the Kingdom’s national domestic carrier established with the purpose of serving the people of Tonga and its visitors. It has a varied fleet of aircraft that service all of the five major island groups in the Kingdom.

REAL Tonga primarily uses a 50 seater Turboprop MA60 for the main route to Vava’u, a 19 seater Jetstream J32 for additional services to Vava’u and support services to Ha’apai, and the balance of the services are carried on a 17 seater Y12 – Ha’apai, Eua and the Niuas.

Ferry Services

Most of the Island groups are serviced by inter island ferries, these are mainly used by the Tongan people as an affordable means of transport. These ferries also carry cargo and livestock etc and provide a vital link between the island groups. Visitors to Tonga can also travel on these ferries, most of which depart from Queen Salote Wharf in Nuku’alofa. Tickets are generally sold on board and also note there are no sailings on Sundays.

Bus Services

Once again like the ferries, the bus services are mainly used by locals, and run from between 8am and 5pm and can be waved down. Local knowledge about how to use the service is a real advantage and both locals and the drivers are only too happy to assist in this area.

Tours

A great way to get around Tonga and also experience some of the places of historical, ecological and cultural interest is to book an organised tour. Various Tour companies on all the major island groups operate sightseeing tours using minibuses or 4×4 vehicles. In Vava’u, Ha’apai and Tongatapu you can also organise boat tours to the outer islands of their group.

Taxis

There are many taxis throughout Tonga with the majority based in Tongatapu. Taxis are often unmarked and are identified by the letter T at the beginning of the number plate.

Taxis are not metered and it is important to always agree on the fare before departure. An acceptable fare from the International Airport to downtown Nuku’alofa would be $30 and short trips around the capital $5-$6. Taxis can also be hired for a half or full day for sightseeing.

Rental Cars

Rental cars are another popular way to get around Tonga and there are a number of companies operating rental fleets in Tonga. A Tongan visitor driver’s license can be easily obtained from the Ministry of Transport in Nuku‘alofa and is required for all drivers in Tonga. Tongan’s drive on the left hand side of the road and the speed limits are generally low compared with Europe or the USA.
