Airport to build small commuter terminal in 2014

Guam - The Guam International Airport Authority has received requests from the Guam Mayors Council and the Association of Mariana Islands Mayors to re-open the airport's commuter terminal.  Airport executive manager Chuck Ada says the request was made to accommodate increased activity for small, commuter flights between Guam, Tinian and Rota.

Ada says plans are in the works to have about 30-40 flights a day between the islands in an effort to stimulate the economy through increased casino activity.  Because the old commuter terminal is currently being leased, the airport is looking to build a small commuter terminal where the old cargo facility is currently located using $3 million from the municipal bond.

Said Ada, "It's expected to start on the 14th of February, on or about of 2014 and hopefully we can complete that in August of the following year."

Ada will be submitting a response to the mayors informing them of the airport's plans.
