More direct flights between Guam and Asia

by Krystal Paco

Guam - Travelers should expect more direct flights between Guam and Asia as the Guam International Airport Authority announces an increase of services for the people of Guam.

During today's GIAA board meeting, deputy executive manager Peter Roy Martinez announced Star Flyer officials finalized its plans earlier this month for direct service to Guam from Kitakyushu, Japan.

"Thirteen charters will be operated in August operating an A320 with 150 capacity," he said. "Star Flyer is a hybrid model operation not an LCC offering in flight passenger service at a lost cost."

The inaugural flight is set to arrive on August 2.

Martinez adds China Airlines, Delta Airlines, United Airlines and Korean Airlines will be adding extra sections between now and next month. Meanwhile regarding the airport's bonds and finances, it was noted that airport management along with GEDA and bond counsels will be working toward the engagement of rating agencies in the first week of August with the price and sales of bonds anticipated in late-August.
