Safety warning over Tonga’s new domestic aircraft


The Government has suspended millions of dollars in tourism aid to Tonga after learning the kingdom wants to use an unsafe plane.

Tonga has been gifted a MA60 for its Real Tonga airline to use for domestic flights by China. The plane has one of the world’s worst safety records.

Since 2009 there have been 11 serious incidents involving MA60s, three of them in the last two months.
