Guam International Airport Authority
24 hours a day, 7 days a week

Håfa Adai! The men and women of the Guam International Airport Authority have played in integral role in growing our island's tourism industry and promoting our island as an ideal destination. The airport offers our visitors the first and last taste of Guam, which is why it's so important that we continue to improve their experience.

We're glad to note that there are $167M in capital improvement projects either ongoing or are being planned. These improvements will help update the airport to create more efficient processes and services for all travelers, and ensure that safety and travel requirements are met. In addition, the men and women of GIAA have a mobile app, featuring flight times and "everything you need" in the palm of your hand.

It's amazing to see how Guam has grown in the last few years and the work going into preparing for more change and growth! Thank you to everyone at GIAA for all of your hard work. It's truly reflected in this year's slogan: "We got this, 24/7".

Divisions Of The A.B. Won Pat International Airport Authority

Håfa Adai! As we enter into our 40th year in operations, the Board of Directors rely on the men and women of the AB. Won Pat International Airport for the day to day operations of Guam's only airport. With that, we would like to feature our divisions and their responsibilities.


The Administration Division provides executive administrative support to Airport Management and the Airport Board of Directors and oversees the key executive support sections of Marketing, Management Information Systems, Management Analysis, Procurement, Personnel and Administrative support.


The Engineering Division oversees and manages the Capital Improvement Program (CIP) and Airport Improvement Program (AIP) for all airport projects to include oversight of the airport tenant improvements. The Engineering Division ensures that the airfield and all airport projects meet and comply with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) rules, regulations, guidelines and criteria.


The Accounting Division manages, safeguards and grows the Authority's assets. It establishes and practices a functioning set of policies and procedures, ensuring compliance to audit and generally accepted accounting principles and ethical standards, and in compliance to all federal and local regulations.

Properties and Facilities

The Properties and Facilities division plans, coordinates, directs, reviews and implements a comprehensive maintenance program involving all buildings, airfield, ground areas, and equipment controlled by the Authority.


The Operations Division is charged with the day-to-day oversight of Airport airside and terminal activities, within the scope of strict FAA regulations. Operations also operates the 24 hour airport control center that performs emergency and non-emergency communications and monitors safety and security systems.

Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting

The Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting Division is responsible for providing fire protection, fire prevention, emergency medical services, and hazardous materials abatement. They are the first responders to any on site aircraft incident and must operate in full compliance to NFPA, and FAA regulations.

Airport Police

The Airport Police is responsible for the preservation of public safety; the protection of the rights of person and property within the air terminal, throughout airport facilities and roadways. The Airport Police works with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA,) F. B. I. and other local, state and federal agencies to enforce the Airport Security Plan and ensure compliance with all FAA and TSA security directives.

Property Management

The Property management Office engages with developers and investors. The Division has primary responsibility for the commercial use of Airport property, ground transportation services, the implementation of concession programs and the lease of space and facilities.

"The numbers speak for themselves but our headline for fiscal year 2014 is the $247M in revenue bonds that were successfully sold on the market in late 2013."

The Board of Directors is committed to developing progressive policies that allow airport management to compete aggressively in attracting new airline service to Guam and build successful business partnerships that generate both aeronautical and non-aeronautical revenue.

The A.B. Won Pat International Airport Authority, Guam was able to target $167M worth of necessary capital improvement projects to propel Guam forward in the aviation industry, firmly establishing our role as the aviation leader in the Western Pacific region. The successful sale of $247M in revenue bonds on the international bond market reaffirmed our financial credibility as a viable and credit worthy institution.

Capital Improvement Projects

Charles H. Ada II, Executive Manager

"In 2014 we secured the additional funds for the rehabilitation of our primary, RW 6L/24R and the installation of navigational aids to support the full use of that runway."

Hardening the airport infrastructure for any and all kinds of expansion and investing in technology and efficiency is a primary focus of the Guam Airport. The fully extended and recently rehabilitated primary runway 6L/24R is now ready and equipped with navigational aids to handle fully loaded, long-haul aircraft should any carrier take on trans-Pacific flight service.

Additionally, our fuel capacity has increased to over 1 million gallons, by bringing online a third fuel tank to provide jet fuel to airlines. This has increased the potential for more flight activity by our carriers as fuel is readily available on island for whatever their expansion needs may be.

Guam was fortunate to receive limited funding, which is hotly competed for, from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), Department of Homeland Security, and is normally granted to large U.S. hub airports. The funds were secured for a recapitalization study of the baggage screening equipment and to fund a newly integrated high-tech system, increasing throughput and eliminating x-ray pods from congesting our ticket lobbies. The new system, designed to meet additional capacity needs and allow for future growth will definitely improve the passenger experience in our airport

Safety and Operations

Mark S. Calvo, Airport Police Officer I

"Our goal is to continue to build strong partnerships with the federal agencies who are tasked with securing our nation and enforcing the strictest safety standards amongst our aviation partners."

One of our key airport safety programs is our certified Airport Police K9 explosive detection unit. Guam Airport's K9 Unit is part of the prestigious Transportation Security Administration's (TSA) National Explosives Detection Canine Team Program (NEDCTP), which is a nationwide cooperative partnership program among participating transportation systems.

TSA provides canines, along with intensive 10-week training courses and in-depth handler training at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas resulting in K9 teams that reflect the core values of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to provide first responders with the right tools, technical assistance and funding to protect our nation's interest.

Guam Airport's K9 Unit is a valuable asset enhancing our airport's security programs, combining excellent mobility with reliable detection rates. Certified annually, our teams receive valuable instruction on handler skills, explosives safety, and safe handling and accountability of explosives canine training aids. They are trained to conduct searches in areas in response to bomb threats specializing in the transportation environment, including the airport terminal, cargo buildings and baggage system areas. They have proven to be very effective deterrents to would-be terrorists or criminals.

Customer Service

Anthony Tornito, Local Traveler

"I've seen so many amenities and customer service features that we're beginning to incorporate here at Guam's airport... wi-fi, a mobile app and a clean and stylish food court!"

The aviation and airport business is dynamic, and one that demands constant improvements to meet the needs of travelers and varied stakeholders. We’ve made major milestones in upgrading the terminal and improving services to meet the discerning tastes of the traveling public... from the seasoned business executive to the first time flyer embarking to see the world.

A new retail concession Lotte Duty Free has upgraded the look of our central core and added brand boutiques to our shopping options inventory. In tandem with that new and improved look, the renovated and updated food court and bathrooms on the concourse add to the air of a clean, modern international airport facility. A new web-based mobile application was launched to help travelers navigate the airport terminal and related services.

Air Service Development

Martha "Marte" Hara, Airport Ambassador

"The increase in passenger activity last year and the diversity was amazing. We were welcoming passengers arriving on new carriers and from new destinations!"

Over the past year the Airport Authority has continued its aggressive efforts to attract new air services into Guam from all over the world. Our collaborative efforts with our public sector agencies targeting economic development and visitor industry partners in promoting Guam as an ideal destination for new carriers or already established carriers looking to expand service routes, paid off with new chartered air service and noticeable increases in visitor arrivals.

Creative marketing of airport services and facilities, and viability of our tourism market, resulted in increased seat capacity from Seoul. New routes were established connecting Guam to Busan, Korea and Kitakyushu, Japan.

We also had the pleasure of seeing additional frequencies to Saporro and Nagoya, key visitor markets in Japan. Our performance in air service development is reflective in our national 9th place ranking in international arrivals by the U.S Department of Commerce, ITA, National Travel and Tourism Office.
