As Guam and the airport transition into PCOR 2, the Guam International Airport Authority says it is more optimistic in terms of arrival projections.

Last week, the Guam Visitors Bureau reported that GVB is estimating only 82,000 visitor arrivals this fiscal year. This is a further decrease from the already downward adjusted figure of 200,000 arrivals projected earlier.

John Quinata, GIAA Executive Manager, spoke to K57’s Patti Arroyo and said that while GVB offered a dismal projection, lately, the airport has been seeing more arrivals with a combination of tourists, returning residents, and military personnel.

Meanwhile, with airport operations now in PCOR 2, this means there will be some changes and easing of restrictions at the airport, in particular to passenger and guest access. Quinata also spoke about these changes under PCOR 2

Under PCOR2, all GIAA offices are open for public access and business effective January 19, from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, excluding weekends and holidays.

Last week, the airport kicked off its 45th anniversary with a virtual proclamation signing ceremony proclaiming the month of January 2021 as Airport Month.
