The decision was confirmed by Prime Minister, Pohiva Tu‘i‘onetoa in Parliament, on Monday.
Tu’I’onetoa also said that he will be making a formal announcement soon, for the public to be aware of the updates.
He also mentioned that a new airline called the Lulutai could possibly start flying the domestic routes in August.
The PM has reminded Members of Parliament that Tonga is fortunate because it remains coronavirus-free.
