Guam - Governor Eddie Calvo signed his first proclamation this afternoon, declaring the week of January 16-22 as "A.B. Won Pat International Airport Week". Officials and board members from the airport gathered for the event.
Airport general manager Mary Torres says the recognition is important as the airport plays a big role in helping to grow the island's tourism economy, telling KUAM News, "Many of the improvements including the expansion of facilities, construction of new buildings, marketing and the funding of these initiatives were only possible with the countless men and women and the hours they dedicated to make Guam's airport better."
