Guam – Guam Visitors Bureau (GVB) is pleased to announce Skymark Airlines has been approved to bring four charters to Guam from Haneda, Japan, in September. The airline, headquartered at Tokyo International Airport, has been working for several months to gain approval from the U.S. Department of Transportation, the Federal Aviation Administration, A.B. Won Pat International Airport, and the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport, and Tourism in Japan.
Charter service is scheduled for Sept. 17, 20, 23, and 26 on a Boeing 737-800, with seat capacity of 177 people in each flight.
“These flights are significant due to their proximity to the airline’s main hub in Tokyo,” said GVB General Manager Gerald S.A. Perez. “Instead of having to commute an hour and a half to Narita to fly to Guam, this will allow those residents living in metro Tokyo the convenience of only a 20-minute commute to the airport to board a plane for Guam. We’re hopeful this will lead to full seat capacity for these flights.”
Several agents will be managing the sale of charter flight tickets including HIS, New Orient Express, JTB, Tabi Kobo, and World Travel.
Skymark Airlines is a low-cost airline with flights on Japan’s regional routes and international charter flights to Seoul.
