Fly Guam cites issues during inaugural flight

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Officials at Fly Guam say the airline has experienced some minor issues, which may have created slight delays. The first flight took off yesterday from the Guam International Airport. After a small delay due to a minor complication with the new reservations system, the first Fly Guam aircraft departed without problems.

The maiden voyage carried a delegation of dignitaries. In addition, during the flight, part of the tail's graphic sticker was lost. The airlines said the aircraft is still in perfect condition and the issue presents no risk to passengers and crew. They say the image will be repaired within the next few days.

In the meantime, throughout the first two weeks of operation, they will offer a round trip twice a week from Guam to Hong Kong via Saipan. Operations will expand by the end of the month.
