Guam - Another airline may be servicing the island soon.


Today, The A.B. Won Pat International Airport Authority announced it received word that T'Way Air filed an application with the U.S. Department of Transportation for a foreign carrier permit and for exemption authority under U.S.-Korea Open Skies. T'Way Air is a privately owned company, low-cost carrier based in Seoul with no ownership by the South Korean government.A release from the airport notes T'Way Air plans to begin daily scheduled air service between Seoul and Guam.


Airport Executive Manager Chuck Ada says this is great news for Guam. “Once airlines file with USDOT and actually have a docket number, we now they mean serious business,” he says. “We already have Korean Air, Jeju Air, Jinair, United Airlines and Air Busan servicing Guam and Korea. Now T'way Air is getting ready to join, proof of our strong Korean market and airlines responding to this demand.”


T'Way Air began operations within Korea in 2010 and currently operates 10 international routes.
