Guam triumphs over extreme weather

The Menzies Aviation team at A.B. Won Pat International Airport (GUM) in Guam dealt with a huge weather event last month.

Super typhoon Wutip was the strongest ever typhoon recorded in the western Pacific Ocean during the month of February. It approached Guam over a weekend, bringing significant wind and heavy rain to the island.

Guam suffered from widespread flooding and power outages, but Menzies Aviation employees at GUM remained safe during the storm, and were back at work the following day to ensure that airport operations were unaffected.

Rodney Paet, General Manager Guam, said: “Our team at GUM are committed to maintaining high levels of safety excellence, and this event was no exception. The team were fantastic in the conditions and conducted an airport-wide FOD (foreign object debris) walk before operations resumed.”
