GIAA receives $4.5M grant from FAA for terminal upgrade
The Federal Aviation Administration has awarded the A.B. Won Pat International Airport Authority grant of $4,474,299 for the modification of the terminal building, which includes seismic upgrades and retrofitting of areas, to support the construction of the new International Arrivals Corridor (3rd Floor Project).
The modifications are part of the overall $110M International Arrivals Corridor Project that will direct all arriving passengers up to a new 3rd floor and drop down to the US Customs and Immigration Hall. Once complete, the airport will meet the federal mandate to separate arriving and departing passengers.
"The FAA has been full supportive of facility improvements to meet the security and safety needs of the traveling public. Their continued support is appreciated as we continue to enhance our facilities and engage in international travel with major aviation players in the region," said Chuck H. Ada, Executive Manager.
