GVB, in partnership with the Guam International Airport Authority (GIAA), welcomed over 160 passengers aboard the inaugural Air Busan flight between Busan and Guam on the morning of July 23, 2015. The new flight service runs four times a week (Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday) and will operate an A320-232 aircraft with a seating capacity of 162.
“We are excited that Air Busan is bringing more visitors to Guam, which ties in well with our Tourism 2020 plan. Korea has seen significant growth as Guam’s second largest market in recent years and we definitely want to keep up that momentum with airline partners like Air Busan,” said GVB General Manager Nathan Denight. “As we continue to promote our Chamorro culture and what visitors can do only on Guam, GVB and our industry partners remain hard at work to grow and diversify arrival numbers in all our visitors markets. We hope our guests have a great time in our island paradise and we encourage everyone to visit Guam into 2016.”
GVB provided a greeting service at the airport for Air Busan President Tae Keun Han, the flight crew, passengers and other airline officials. The welcome delegation consisted of Denight, Deputy General Manager Telo Taitague, GIAA Executive Manager Chuck Ada, GIAA Deputy Executive Manager Pedro Roy Martinez, GVB Board Director Hong Soon Im, GVB Marketing Manager Pilar Laguaña, GVB Marketing Officer II Gina Kono, GVB Marketing Officer I Colleen Cabedo, Miss World Guam 2014 Chanel Victoria Cruz Jarrett and other greeters.
