Beijing – Guam Non-Stop

On June 21, 2014, the island of Guam welcomed 116 Chinese passengers aboard the first regularly scheduled non-stop charter flight from Beijing, China to Guam, USA. The new scheduled non-stop service was announced at a gala reception last week in Beijing, China in partnership between Guam Visitors Bureau and US-based carrier Dynamic Airways. The new scheduled non-stop service aims to satisfy the increasing demand of Chinese tourists who prefer short-haul holidays. The tropical resort island of Guam is a 5-hour direct flight from Beijing.

Paul Kraus, Managing Partner of Dynamic Airways said, “Chinese tourists landed in Guam on the first regularly scheduled non-stop flight from China. As Chinese tourists are very keen on visiting the US, we believe Guam will become one of the favorable short-haul destinations for Chinese, where they can enjoy fantastic tropical island scenes and unparalleled shopping experience after a 5-hour flight.”

Dynamic Airways will fly a Boeing 767-200 ER direct from Beijing to Guam every five days with a seat capacity of about 235 passengers, and plans to add three direct charter service flights between Chengdu and Guam later this summer. The airline expects to fly approximately 10,000 Chinese tourists to Guam by the end of the year.

“China is the No. 1 visitor source market in the world and it continues to grow rapidly,” said Guam Visitors Bureau General Manager Karl A. Pangelinan. “It’s absolutely essential for Guam to get its foot in the door with this expanding market. With a strong partnership with Dynamic Airways, we are very confident and are aggressively pursuing the China market as we realize our Tourism 2020 plan.”

The new scheduled non-stop service is on target with the Bureau’s Tourism 2020 mission to achieve 1.5 million visitors by 2015 and to incrementally grow visitor arrivals to 2 million by 2020-23. The Bureau is pushing forward by diversifying the island’s market mix and aggressively targeting the China market. Guam’s 2014 visitor arrivals from China show a 23.3% growth over last year and the island has welcomed over 6,250 Chinese visitors this year so far. By 2020, Guam Visitors Bureau expects to welcome up to 200,000 Chinese visitors to Guam annually.
