Guam to be Pacific hub for merged airlines

by Nick Delgado

Guam - Continental Micronesia has broken the silence about the mega-merger between itself and United. Officials say the transaction brings together two of the industry's leading airlines to create a strong global competitor. The combined airline now has ten hubs, and officials say that Guam will serve as the Pacific hub.

The merger should provide new opportunities for Guam by providing more access to a broader and deeper global network.

The airline does admit that the effect of the merger will have a minimal impact on frontline employees, with reductions coming from retirement, attrition and voluntary programs. Still, the company says it expects long-term benefits such as career opportunities and enhanced job stability due to the merger.
