Robert Tapaitau, the Deputy Prime Minister, visited the Polynesian Cultural Center on Thursday, May 18. The purpose of their visit was to explore PCC’s offerings and forge stronger alliances in preparation for the inaugural service between Honolulu and Rarotonga by Hawaiian Airlines, starting on May 20th. The Deputy Prime Minister expressed his desire to return to PCC in the future, as his daughter will be attending Brigham Young University Hawaii in Fall 2023.
