21.0301 Pago Pago International Airport-Port of entry.


The Pago Pago International Airport is the only port of entry for American Samoa for aircrafts. All aircrafts must enter and be cleared from such port. No aircraft may call at any other port in American Samoa without first entering and clearing from the Pago Pago International Airport unless the Governor determines that the public interest or an emergency requires the aircraft to enter another port without first entering and clearing from the Pago Pago International Airport and grants permission to do so. An aircraft in distress may land at any port in American Samoa.

21.0302 Notice of illegal entry.


If any aircraft not in distress enters or attempts to enter a port in violation of the provisions of 21.0301, the pulenuu of the village at such port or the representative of the Director of Health shall communicate the fact by the fastest available means to the Director of Port Administration, and shall inform the master of the aircraft that such entry is in violation of law.
