History

During World War II, Tongareva was of strategic importance. In 1942, 1,000 U.S. servicemen began constructing a 10,000 ft airstrip on the motu of Moananui. The airstrip was used by the American military until 1946. The island was not directly attacked, but was used for transport of men and materials.

Airlines and destinations

No scheduled flight as of May 2019; however, Air Rarotonga occasionally flies to the island.
