Ha’apai’s Pilolevu Airport is 3km north of Pangai on Lifuka. The island’s main north–south road passes right through the middle of the runway, meaning that the road is closed when aircraft are arriving or departing.
Real Tonga flies daily (except Sunday) between Ha’apai and Tongatapu, and three or four times a week between Ha’apai and Vava’u.
MV ‘Otuanga’ofa, operated by Friendly Islands Shipping Company, stops weekly at Pangai on both its northbound and southbound runs between Tongatapu and Vava’u.
There are protected anchorages along the lee shores of Lifuka, Foa, Ha’ano and Uoleva.
