Guam - Continental Micronesia president and chief operating officer Charles Duncan says the airline continues to work on expanding the number of flights it brings to Guam. Duncan says the direct flight to Hong Kong will begin on April 2, with both arrival and departure flights scheduled for Mondays and Fridays.
He adds that the airline also continues to compete for one of the Hanaeda flights to Guam. Duncan says he anticipates a response from the Department of Transportation on the application in the next month in hopes to begin the Hanaeda-Guam flights by October. "It's going to be an uphill battle and I really do want to thank the government leaders, civic leaders, business leaders here on Guam for their support. I think DC has heard loud and clear that the community on Guam wants a flight from Hanaeda and that helps our case make it a lot stronger."
Duncan adds that an eighth additional weekly flight to and from Manila will begin on March 27.
