Nauru Airlines To Revive Weekly Flights To Guam

Flights to go via Tarawa, Majuro, Pohnpei

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (Radio New Zealand International, April 17, 2017) – Nauru Airlines has secured a permit allowing it to revive its Guam route.

The Marianas Variety reports Nauru's flag carrier, which is projected to bring air traffic of 5,000 passengers a year between Guam and transit points, received its permit from the U.S. Department of Transportation last week.

The permit allows Nauru Airlines to transport people, property and mail between Nauru and Guam via Tarawa, Majuro and Pohnpei for a period of five years.

The transportation department has also granted Nauru Air charter rights between any points in Nauru and the United States.

Nauru Airlines said it planned to offer a once-a-week round trip between Nauru and Guam using B737-300 aircraft.

No date has been given for the resumption of the service which had ended more than a decade ago.
