The A.B. Won Pat International Airport Authority, Guam (GIAA) announces modifications to the taxi services at the airport, which will go into effect Wednesday, September 1, 2021 at 12:00 AM.
ALL taxicab operations at will be relocated from the Commercial Parking Lot to the West Arrivals Curbside. Passengers requiring taxi services will exit from the West Arrivals Tunnel and follow directional signs towards the West Arrivals Curbside, where taxicabs will be queued. In the event of inclement weather, Airport Police personnel will guide passengers into the East Arcade hallway for temporary queuing.
Taxi queuing will be based on a “first-come, first-served” basis. The taxi queue will start at the West Arrivals Curbside (by Airport Police Arcade) and connect with a new secondary staging, the Taxi Feeder Parking Area. The Feeder Parking Area is located adjacent to the Light Aircraft Commuter Facility (LACF), across from the new Cell Phone Lot. As each taxi departs from the West Arrivals Curbside, the taxis in queue will move up and those at the Feeder Parking Area will fill vacant spots from the rear of the queue. With this system, the taxicab operators will oversee their dispatching services and utilize a unified radio system (I-Connect) for all communications within the team.
“The safety and security of all airport patrons, employees, and traveling public here at Guam’s only civilian airport is always at the top of our priorities. As we continue to develop procedures to ensure a safe airport environment, it is mandatory that all ground transportation partners adhere to and abide by the most current DPHSS guidance for ground transportation operations. Only with everyone’s support and cooperation in adhering to public health guidelines, can we maintain a level of near-normal airport operations even with the COVID-19 pandemic still raging in our community,” stressed GIAA Executive Manager John “JQ” M. Quinata.
