Guam airport to commence terminal apron and runway project in March

By Pacific Island Times News Staff

The A.B. Won Pat International Airport Authority is set to break ground next month on the terminal aircraft apron and taxiway rehabilitation project, which will be funded through a $31.1 million grant from the Federal Aviation Administration.

Airport officials said the grant was awarded to the airport authority in Fall 2023 from the FAA discretionary funds under the Airport Improvement Program.

The "long-awaited" project will commence in March, according to a press release from the airport.

"Although passengers—during their arrival and departure experiences—may not immediately feel the difference this investment in our aircraft apron and taxiway areas may have once completed, it is an important aspect of aircraft and airport safety,” said Artemio “Ricky” Hernandez, acting executive manager.

Under the FAA AIP discretionary grant, the cost split for the apron and taxiway project is 90 percent from federal funds and 10 percent from the airport authority's capital improvement funds.

"Once again, we express our thanks to the FAA for their continued support of Guam’s only commercial airport through the funding of this much-needed rehabilitation of the parking and aircraft movement areas surrounding our main terminal building," Hernandez said.
