Other projects include funding for its annual wildlife hazard assessment programme; the design of a new training facility for its fire fighters; design work to rehabilitate apron and ramp areas and the establishment of a new Airport Safety Management System (SMS) manual for its entire airfield environment.

"We want to thank the FAA for their support in ensuring Guam's airport attains the highest of standards in operating a world class airport," says Charles Ada II, execitive manager of Guam International Airport Authority.

“The FAA acknowledges the importance of Guam's in the Micronesian region, and the western most US airport in the Pacific."
