Update: 7:41PM ALL Air Pacific flights to and from Apia in Samoa today and tomorrow have been cancelled by Air Pacific in light of Tropical Cyclone Evan.

In a statement, Air Pacific said the cancellation was issued following the impact and continuing effects of TC Evan in Samoa.

"Specifically, the Nadi-Apia-Honolulu and Honolulu-Apia services today (Friday) and the Apia-Nadi service tomorrow (Saturday) is cancelled," the airline said.

"As always, the safety of our passengers and staff is our highest priority, and with the current storm system affecting the region, we have had to make appropriate schedule changes.

"With the current situation in Apia and considering safety and operational constraints faced at Apia airport, the airport cannot be used as an alternate for any direct Nadi-Honolulu and Honolulu services tonight."

Change fees would be waived for affected passengers while passengers on affected flights were advised to call the Air Pacific call centre for further information and updates, the airline said.

Meanwhile, additional schedule updates from the airline is expected to be made tomorrow morning.
