$3.2M earmarked for Guam airport's terminal roof rehabilitation



By Pacific Island Times News Staff


The Federal Aviation Administration has awarded $3.2 million to the A.B. Won Pat International Airport Authority for its terminal roofing project.


The new grant, which comes from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, supplements the funds previously awarded to the Guam airport.


“We are very happy to receive these additional funds toward this worthy project,” said John M. Quinata, the airport's executive manager.


“These funds will be put to good use in rehabilitating our entire terminal roof and allows us to also install solar racking as we look to more efficient and sustainable practices in managing our energy consumption," he added.


The grant awarded to the Guam airport is part of the $148.3 million in Infrastructure Bill funding announced by the Biden administration to support 73 projects at 70 airports across the nation.

U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said the program aimed at "modernizing America’s aviation system."


“Part of GIAA’s ability to secure federal funds is the prudent management of our finances, proper planning and execution of projects, and excellent communication with our FAA partners," said  Artemio “Ricky” Hernandez, deputy executive manager.


The airport authority recently broke ground on a $41.7 million rehabilitation project for the terminal apron and taxiways.


Hernandez said more capital improvement projects are underway to upgrade and enhance the airport facilities.
