Travel & Leisure Are Still Budding Industries
The tourism industry is small but growing. There are about 200 hotel rooms in the territory. The U.S. military does not have any bases in American Samoa, but there is an active Army Reserve presence and many American Samoans have served and continue to enlist in the U.S. military.
There are two or three non-stop flights to American Samoa each week, and hourly flights to the independent nation of Samoa. Regular ocean freight service provides direct connections to and from the U.S., New Zealand, Australia, Asia, and other Pacific islands.
