Guam – Continental Airlines completed installation and operation of a new jetbridge boarding adapter for the ATR aircraft of Cape Air flights at Gate 4 at the A.B. Won Pat Guam International Airport.
The new jetbridge boarding adapter was purchased to improve safety, convenience and customer satisfaction with Cape Air flights and was first used with inbound flight 9313 arriving from Saipan on November 15th.
“Passengers previously had to make use of the stairs when boarding and deplaning but thanks to the support and cooperation of the A.B. Won Pat Guam International Airport Authority, we have been able to improve convenience and safety for our passengers by using this new jetbridge boarding adapter specifically designed for ATR aircraft”, said Brian Wessling, Regional Director, Airport and Cargo Operation – Asia for Continental Airlines.
“This acquisition represents a significant convenience enhancement for passengers and we are delighted to be launching this new offering,” said Geoff Price, Pacific Administrator for Cape Air. “Today’s announcement is a major achievement and we thank Continental Airlines for their help in bringing this to fruition.”
Continental Airlines will also continue to work with the Saipan Airport Authority to introduce this enhanced service to the Saipan Airport>
