Guam - Governor Eddie Calvo recently returned from his trip to China ahead of Dynamic Airways' launch of the inaugural direct scheduled air service from Beijing to Guam this weekend. The governor along with other island leaders were in China for a press conference commemorating the event. He says the trip was a success and will lead to more exciting times for Guam.

He said, "We had an opportunity sit down with the chairman of (China International Travel Service) which is the largest travel agency in China, in fact it's government owned I met with the chairman, she spent about an hour and 20 minutes with us in a closed door meeting with her top folks, very interested then when we had a gala dinner that night bringing in all the other travel agencies, the chairwoman was there for the entire night and she's expressed her support from CITS to push forward for many, many thousands of Chinese travelers to visit our island."

The inaugural flight arrives Saturday morning at the Guam International Airport.
