Guam airport reopens today for regular flight operations
After working around the clock to address the impacts to the airport terminal building, equipment, and operations by Typhoon Mawar, the Guam International Airport Authority will open on May 29 at 3 p.m.
Airport officials advised passengers to expect delays in travel processing.
"We greatly appreciate everyone’s patience as the collective airport team of employees, airlines, contractors, vendors, tenants, and regulatory agencies have worked tirelessly to repair and prepare our airport for passenger operations,” said John “JQ” M. Quinata, executive manager of the GIAA.
“We previously announced a target date of May 30th to reopen. The airport’s Emergency Coordination Center has operated 24/7 to address the damage and efforts toward recovery have been robust and sweat equity by all our airport partners allows us to open earlier than anticipated.
The airport has phased into normal operations with a restricted opening for humanitarian and essential cargo flights on May 25, 2023, bringing much-needed supplies and emergency personnel to Guam. These operations will continue for typhoon recovery efforts.
As we reopen, I want to ensure we set the expectations for all our passengers. We are open, but we are still recovering to pre-typhoon levels as we continue to improve passenger experience,” stated Quinata. “All passengers should expect delays as all of our airport partners throughout the departures and arrivals process continue to recover to pre-typhoon operations.
Airlines are anticipated to file their flight plans with the GIAA to begin flight operations and to bring their regularly scheduled operations online. Passengers are advised to contact their airlines directly for flight status and rescheduling their flights.
