Guam - Celebrating 36 years of being an autonomous agency in the government, Governor Eddie Calvo today signed a proclamation declaring January 15-20 as A.B. Won Pat International Airport Week. GIAA executive manager Mary Torres says the week will be full of events and activities recognizing the hard work of airport employees and vendors.

"Civilian aviation began in 1935 on Guam and has transformed itself over the years keeping up to date with the latest needs in tourism, commerce and security. This evolution has grown our island's economy tremendously," she said.

She adds a groundbreaking ceremony will be held next week for the airport's new instrument landing system.
