GVB Honors Airlines and Korean Consul for Typhoon Recovery Support

The GVB along with Lt. Governor Josh Tenorio and the A.B. Won Pat International Airport (GIAA), came together to recognize four of Guam’s major airlines and the Consulate of the Republic of Korea for their support during the ongoing recovery efforts associated with Typhoon Mawar.

Airline representatives from Jin Air, Jeju Air, T’way, Korean Air, and Consul In Kook Kim were awarded certificates of appreciation and a plaque at a luncheon at the Hilton Guam Resort & Spa.

“We congratulate our major airlines and the Korean Consulate’s office for their outstanding commitment and fortitude as we recover from Typhoon Mawar’s impact on our community and visitor markets.”

Lt. Governor Tenorio added, “We also acknowledge the team at the Guam airport for their dedication to getting the airport open in record time so our residents and visitors could travel home safely on May 29.”

“We commend the swift actions of Consul Kim and his office to help alleviate the hardships our visitors faced during the typhoon and the valuable partnerships we have with Jin Air, Jeju Air, T’way, and Korean Air,” said GVB Acting President & CEO Gerry Perez. “Their humanitarian actions went above and beyond the call of duty to serve travelers during a challenging period and exemplified the true spirit of inafa’maolek.”
